Flashback Friday: Maxwell and Aaliyah

Yes lord, Friday is finally here. Now who is ready to get this thing over with?

Here’s some music that will help Friday fly by.

Javacia is spellbound by one of R&B’s most enigmatic men.

Maxwell, Embrya (1998)

Jai said: “I love this Maxwell album because it feels like it transports me to another world. His lyrics are like poetry.”

Edward ponders what could have been.

Aaliyah, I Care 4 U (2002)

Edd said: “Yeah, I guess all the recent Aaliyah talk has left me a bit nostalgic. I Care 4 U is not only a solid selection of Aaliyah’s hits, it also has a fare share of unreleased tracks that are pretty impressive in their own right. It’s a reminder of how great Aaliyah was and how phenomenal her career should have been. I contend that if she was around today, she’d share the same rarefied air as Beyonce and, ugh, Rihanna.”
