On Monday, Missy Elliott took to Twitter to pay tribute to The Princess of R&B Aaliyah, on what would’ve been her 44th birthday.
The hip hop star praised her close friend Aaliyah for her contributions to the music industry, saying, “You will forever be the BLUEPRINT of what it means to STEP OUTSIDE the box MUSICALLY & creating NEW style in FASHION & a NATURAL at acting & being GREAT at them all. The World will always feel your IMPACT & LOVE you shared 4ever.”
Missy has remained loyal to the friend who was more like a sister… paying tribute and keeping Aaliyah’s name alive since we lost her in a tragic plane crash in August of 2001 at the age of 22.
May we all have a friend so dear... and remember to always celebrate your magic! xo
