"If Your Girl Only Knew"
This is the Aaliyah we all know and love: clad in sunglasses, leather, and baggy pants. One of the most memorable parts of the video is at the very end, when Aaliyah's eyes change colors thanks to (what was at the time) top-of-the-line tech. Yes, Lil Kim is "the girl." And yes, that's Timbaland, Missy, and 702.
"One in a Million"
"Your love is one in a million — it goes on and on and on." Missy Elliot and Timbaland wrote the lyrics to this R & B classic. But Aaliyah made those words shine. Fun fact: This video also features a cameo from Ginuwine.
"Are You That Somebody?"
While the movie Dr. Dolittle may not go down in history as a classic, Aaliyah's song for the soundtrack, "Are You That Somebody," probably will. Rolling Stone once wrote in an album guide that the song "remains one of '90s' R & B's most astounding moments."
"We Need a Resolution"
The only thing better than the song's experimental sound — which features stop-start drum arrangements — is the music video. While Aaliyah normally stayed away from intense makeup, she used this video as an opportunity to experiment with her beauty looks, too.
"More Than a Woman"
The video for "More Than a Woman" was filmed just weeks before Aaliyah's tragic death. She only ever performed the song live twice — once on Regis & Kelly and another time on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. The song was nominated for Best Female R & B Vocal Performance at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards.
