After so many years #TeamAaliyah have finally been blessed as of yesterday with not one but two exclusive unreleased demo tracks by our beloved Babygirl. I was a bit reluctant to post these at first, since there are a lot of legal issues involving Aaliyah's music in general. The smallest of things like not having access to her music on streaming sites such as Spotify, iTunes, Tidal etc...is very heartbreaking and disappointing as a fan, since Aaliyah worked very hard for her fans in order to have her music out there. Witnessing this before our very own eyes going to waste, is not a very nice thing at all. However it's not everyday we as fans get to hear new music on such a grand scale as this, so let's enjoy this moment whilst it lasts, for I am not sure how long this video will be on Youtube.
A HUGE thank you to all of those within the fanbase who personally messaged and tagged me so that I wouldn't miss seeing this. I truly appreciate you guys! You are nothing but short of amazing, and I am very thankful. Thanks also to @burrellbrothersentertainment for uploading these gems! We as fans are beyond happy! 🙏🏽💚 The pure joy and love I felt upon listening gave me straight goosebumps, and since then, I've had both these tracks on heavy rotation. I woke up yesterday morning listening to 'La La La' first and automatically tears came running down my face. The production first and foremost is reminiscent from the 'One In A Million' era. Lyrically the song is also so beautifully put together that it makes you feel like you're literally on cloud 9 up above in the heavens so high 😍. In comparison to the second track which you're probably thinking hold on..."But we've already heard that one!" Which you are true to say, however this version of No Days Go By, features a sample from Slick Rick where he says...
"It's all because of you, I'm feeling sad and blue.
You went away, and now my life is filled with rainy days."
You can listen to the original sample below which is from Slick Rick & Doug E.Fresh - La Di Da Di (ironic how even the titles are very similar right? 😄) which comes at 2:47 if you wanna go straight to it. What you will find interesting from this joint is that a lot of bars you hear have been heavily sampled from many iconic hip hop artists. However, Slick Rick is the original OG, and for that we have to give him is dues! Funnily enough, when I heard the sample in No Days Go By, I automatically felt like I had heard it from somewhere before, and now I see why! I also love the fact how Aaliyah yet again shows both the female and male perspective and for that, I feel like the song is more complete. 😇
And now for the one you're eager to listen to 😎 Enjoy!
