EDITORS’ NOTES

Released when Aaliyah was just 15, Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number remains one of the best-loved albums of '90s R&B. Expertly produced from top to bottom by R. Kelly, it has aged better than Kelly’s works from the same period. While much of the era’s R&B now sounds dated, Aaliyah’s abilities are timeless. Her voice is as cool and ethereal as a princess’s, but she has the real-life presence of a teenager. In songs like “At Your Best You Are Love,” she translated the sensation of being young and lovelorn with an authenticity that older performers—even experts—couldn't grasp.

Come on, another one?

This is a good CD, but you had to put another one here? There's nothing different about this one. The price is the same, the songs are in the same order, there's no added songs, come on iTunes. Put "One in a Million" or "Aaliyah" on here instead of putting the same exact CD.
