Everyone from SnkrBst would like to wish R&B’s sweetheart Aaliyah a happy birthday. Today January 16, 2014 would have been Aaliyah’s 35th birthday. Aaliyah was one of the first female R&B singers to rock sneakers and still remain sexy. It was not common for a female singer to pull off sneakers and overalls however Aaliyah did and made it look good. Back in the day wearing sneakers and baggy clothes was a trend because woman still showed sex appeal. Aaliyah opened a lot of doors for woman and allowed them to feel comfortable in their own skin no matter what they wore. Aaliyah was a fearless, talented and humble woman who followed her dreams and did not let anyone or anything get in the way of that. Your legacy lives on and will always be “one in a million”. Rest in paradise Baby girl.
