Aaliyah Archives: Eric Seats Tape Cassette Throwbacks


Hey Aaliyah fam! Sorry I've not been posting as much! 🙈 As you all know I've been going through some personal issues, so just wanted you guys to know that I've not gone anywhere! 😉

From the picture above, about exactly a week ago 'Key Beats' producer Eric Seats happened to share some of his own personal archives with us all. Here's his caption for all those who missed out...

@ericseats: "#Aaliyah #4/2/99 #KeyBeatsInc 

Y'all didn't hear these HITS until 2001! #Music #ForwardThinking #Rap&Seats #ES3️⃣3️⃣3️⃣".

Now talk about a throwback! 😩 Making hits since 1999! Woww…😮 ❤ A sound like no other back then! It truly amazes me how far ahead of time Aaliyah was, be it in the fashion industry as well as music. If this isn't enough proof to show how far ahead of the game she was, I don't know what is! 💁 Both Eric Seats and Rapture Stewart clearly did their thing back then and it shows. 👏 

Anyone who knows me well enough, will know that my all time favourite song off the red album is 'Extra Smooth' produced by none other than Key Beats! I love it so much that I even made my first video edit to the song which you can check out below ☺️ (Be sure to subscribe to my youtube page if you haven't already. 😎)




But I digress...Did anyone notice anything else on the tape? 😏 Well you'd be correct if you said yes! Just when you think you've come across every and any possible unreleased title regarding Aaliyah, we have yet another one to add to the bucket list titled... 'No More'. We can only hope and pray that one day we'll be able to hear such a hidden gem.

Mr. Seats did however share another demo snippet a few days after, which was of Aaliyah's 'Erica Kane' sung by none other than Static Major which you can listen to below! Enjoy! 😄


Woww...talk about smooth! I love this version too! 😩😍❤ Playa sure did their thang on this joint! Musical harmony to my ears! Thank you so much for sharing these gems with us all Eric! 🙏💚
