Aaliyah’s final studio and self-titled album will finally be released on vinyl for the first time. It has been reported that it will be a two-LP set on red and gold galaxy-color vinyl that will come with a listening notes booklet and some art. Amileah Sutliff, VMP’s Head of Editorial said in a statement, “It’s long been a dream for VMP to bring this remarkable record to our members."She continued, "Aaliyah is a true masterpiece from an artist who was unimaginably influential in her too-short time on earth, so it means the world to us to be able to honor her legacy and finally present a definitive vinyl reissue, created with the level of care this record deserves.” Aaliyah was released one month before the singer tragically died in a plane crash in 2001. The album gained three posthumous Grammy nominations for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “More Than a Woman” and “Rock the Boat,” and Best R&B Album. Aaliyah was 22-years-old when she passed away.
