"If you had told me when Romeo Must Die came out that I'd get sick of people name-checking Aaliyah, or even a little sick of people trying to sound like Aaliyah, that would have been hard to imagine," Kelefa Sanneh told The FADER last year. "I wanted as much Aaliyah-ish stuff as I could get. But sure enough, even someone like her, who was really underappreciated during her lifetime, can after the fact become so ubiquitous that listeners start wanting something else."
The steady parade of Aaliyah homage isn't quite over yet though: during a recent guest set on OVO Sound Radio, DVSN played a remix of the singer's "One In A Million." The duo's version takes Aaliyah's vocal and some of Timbaland's signature percussion and places it on top Prince's guitar playing from "Purple Rain." Listen below.
