Today our Hump Day Hottie is the beautiful and talented Aaliyah. If the talented the Princess of R&B had not tragically passed away 18 years ago, today would be her 40th birthday. The singer died at the age of 22 when her plane crashed a minute after takeoff according to several reports, as it was leaving the Bahamas where she had filmed the music video for “Rock the Boat” which is celebrating it’s 18th birthday today as well. Aaliyah may be gone but her legacy continues today through musicians such as Drake and Frank Ocean, who have both covered her songs. Even her fashion sense also continues to influence pop culture with stars taking inspiration from her like Ciara and Boity. Yet, despite being a big star, Aaliyah was shrouded in mystery and liked to keep it that way. Lets show this beautiful angel some love today!
