Fans of Aaliyah can look forward to her full discography coming to streaming platforms on her next birthday, January 16, 2020. The news was broken by the late musician’s uncle, Barry Hankerson, who took to Twitter to make the announcement.
“We listened, this is not a drill in honor of the great legacy of #Aaliyah,” he tweeted on his private account, then tagging Apple Music, Spotify, TIDAL, and Amazon Prime Music. Hankerson concluded the announcement with “1/16/2020.″

Aaliyah recorded three studio albums before passing away in 2001: 1994’s Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number, 1996’s One in a Million, and 2001’s Aaliyah. To date, Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number is the only one available for streaming. Complex has previously reported that Hankerson is seemingly responsible for the other two albums not appearing on streaming platforms, as he holds the rights to One in a Million and Aaliyah.
Nonetheless, we can all look forward to Aaliyah’s full discography becoming available for streaming on January 16.
