Song of The Day #111

Happy new year, everyone! It's 5771, but, let's face it: That ain't nothing but a number. You know what else ain't nothing but a number? Age. And in this, her debut single, Aaliyah makes that fact abundantly clear. Whether the song is about her semi-creepy relationship with R. Kelly or the Jewish new year or something else altogether, it's a seductive bit of early-90s R&B that, while awesome, only hints at the oddball genius R&B Aaliyah would go on to put out in subsequent years. She was one of the genre's (and the decade's) most interesting voices, and it's a real shame she died. R.I.P.
