August 25 marks the death anniversary for Aaliyah Dana Haughton. She was one of my favourite singers in the R&B/Pop scene, and was well on her way into becoming one of the greatest in the music industry.
The song that really got me into her was “Are You That Somebody” from the Doctor Dolittle soundtrack back in 1998. But the sample is so short (seems like its half a second long. Really, its one guitar note). So, i went to the next best familiar track to me, “We Need a Resolution”.
The sample comes from John Ottoman’s “Tricks of the Trade”. It comes in at 1:26. I would start listening at the beginning until you get to the sample. Its a pretty interesting track.
