VMP (Vinyl Me Press) released their exclusive pressing of the Aaliyah Vinyl Record in April for members only. They kept their word of having the vinyl available for non-members to purchase months after.
AALIYAH is NOW available as of June 26, 2022 for non-members of VMP. The record is $47, for me after tax/shipping is was $56. I suggest purchasing this as soon as you can, if you can.
Purchase here: VMP
Yesterday, I decided to get out the house and go to American Dream Mall. I walked by Charlotte Russe, and decided to go in because I know they sale Aaliyah tees. Once I went in, to the right was a table of licensed tees. I saw Aaliyah, opened up the shirt to take a photo of it. To my surprise it was a crop top, $10. Great price, imo. No, I didn’t buy it as I’m on a tight budget and I would rather own some Aaliyah tees other than in black.
But, I took a photo of it because I enjoy finding Aaliyah related things outside of home. The next amazing thing happened after I took the photo and folded the shirt back: One in a Million began playing in the store! It was amazing, the music was playing so loud. So due to the song I stayed in the store lip syncing along to Aaliyah. 🤍

“She was playing with me, she was pretending to be mad. The thing about Aaliyah she was always smiling, always full of energy. And I said let me get that angel, that sweetness. [she poses with her arms crossed] She did this whole thing, she starting throwing her fists at me, that was an act. I have the rest of the pictures, and when you look at them you laugh.
It was her 16th birthday, at the Apollo Theatre.” – shares photographer Ernie Paniccioli

Welcome to the new blog for The Best Aaliyah! I recently removed my blog from Tumblr, and now I’m on Word Press. You may see some work that may need to be done, I’d still like to add more content to the side navigations, but I just want to open up to stay on top of any Aaliyah news.
This blog will serve for the latest news on Aaliyah and sprinkle in new images when they arise. Enjoy!
