  • The star’s previous label, Blackground Data has signed a distribution offer with EMPIRE, which will see the release of her albums on services such as Spotify beginning twenty August.

Aaliyah’s comprehensive catalogue will be making its way to new music streaming services. For several years, most of the singer’s most significant hits ended up not available to followers online. 

But now, in accordance to studies, the star’s previous label, Blackground Data, started by her uncle Barry Hankerson, has signed a distribution offer with EMPIRE, which will see the release of her albums on services such as Spotify beginning twenty August. 

In accordance to a article shared on Spotify’s Instagram account, Aaliyah’s One particular in A Million album will be available to stream from twenty August, even though the Romeo Need to Die soundtrack will fall on 3 September. The singer’s self-titled album, Aaliyah, will be available from 10 September, and I Care four U and Final Aaliyah drops on 8 Oct.  

Though excellent information for her followers who have patiently been waiting around to stream their favorite Aaliyah tracks, the decision to release the catalogue is a person that has allegedly brought on friction amongst Aaliyah’s uncle and her estate.  

The singer’s estate, run by Aaliyah LLC on behalf of her mother, Diane Haughton, and her brother, Rashad Haughton, claims the decision by Blackground Data to companion up with EMPIRE on the release of the catalogue took position with out their know-how. 

Aaliyah LLC attorney Paul LiCalsi explained in a assertion to Billboard: “Aaliyah’s estate has usually been completely ready to share Aaliyah’s musical legacy but has been fulfilled with competition and a gross absence of transparency.”

He continued: “For practically twenty several years, Blackground has failed to account to the estate with any regularity in accordance with her recording contracts. In addition, the estate was not designed informed of the impending release of the catalog right until just after the offer was entire and programs ended up in position.”

A assertion was also released to Aaliyah’s official Instagram web site, speaking out in opposition to the release of the singer’s new music with out her estate’s know-how. 

Aaliyah died on twenty five August 2001 in a tragic plane crash that also claimed the life of eight other people.
