Aaliyah’s sophomore album “One in a million” has been officially released on streaming services. This 20-year battle of Aaliyah’s musical catalog is finally put to rest as Blackground records announced Aaliyah and many other artist albums will finally be available on musical platforms. Blackground records is a record label that was founded in 1993 by Jomo and Barry Hankerson, who is the uncle of the late Aaliyah Haughton. The label was created in hopes of having Aaliyah as the lead  artist signed to the label, but  was unsuccessful. Blackground records began to focus on other acts like Jojo,  L.A.X Gurlz,  Autumn Marini, Crystal Nicole, and Ashley Parker Angel.

 The label announced weeks before that their coming out of retirement rebranding to “Blackground 2.0” and album releases of music from Toni Braxton, Timberland, Tank, and Jojo.

In chronological order, Blackground 2.0 plans to release Aaliyah’s music discography starting with “One in a million” that became the number one R&B album on iTunes within an hour and consecutively in the top 10 since being released. The album was produced by Missy Elliot and Timberland with hits like four-page letter, if your girl only knew, the one I gave my heart to, and her most notable track “one in a million”.

From August 20 until October 1, the album rollout includes Aaliyah’s One in a Million, ΛΛLIYΛH, I Care 4 U and the Ultimate Aaliyah compilation.

Aaliyah’s music can be found via Spotify, tidal, and Apple Music.
