I have to admit, I'm such a sucker for this song. For me, this is one of those feel good songs that I could put on at any time, no matter what, and it will put me in a good mood. Can you believe that Aaliyah would have been 31 today? I sometimes forget that she accomplished so much at such an early age. Even if you put her body of work up against most other r&b artists, she still comes out on top. Of course, we have to give Static his due as he penned many of her major hits. But as Tim mentioned, the two had a very special chemistry and worked very well together. One thing is for sure, they are still creating those hits right now up in heaven.
I recently hit up Rashad Haughton, who is Aaliyah's brother and was very close to her, on Twitter to ask about Static. Here is what he had to say. Full interview to follow??
