Today, August 27th, 2014 marks the 18th anniversary of Aaliyah’s 2nd, most groundbreaking album 'One In A Million'.
Since its initial reception, the album has been recognized by writers and music critics as redefining the genre coming into the late 1990s and solidifying Aaliyah’s position as a key figure in R&B music. In a retrospective review, Slant Magazine said that it is “undoubtedly one of the most influential R&B albums of the ’90s,” and credited it for establishing “Aaliyah and the Timbo family as undeniable hip-hop forces.” [source]
On June 16, 1997, the album was certified 2x Platinum.
