Aaliyah reworked: 10 mashups to celebrate her birthday
You know the songs, tragically frozen in time after R&B singer Aaliyah's untimely death: "Try Again," "Are You That Somebody" and "We Need a Resolution." We've heard them, sung them aloud while cruising the city, romanced to them, danced to them. And we've also adapted them. By reworking those Timbaland-produced jams, their sheen and joy pops in new ways. The singer would have been 34 on Wednesday.
