From the Vault: Aaliyah Try Again

Aaliyah-Tribute-2

This week’s From the Vault entry comes from R&B princess Aaliyah.

We decided to dust ourselves off and ‘Try Again‘. The aforementioned track ‘Try Again‘ was released as single from the ‘Romeo Must Die Soundtrack‘, a film which the laid star also starred in.

The single debuted at number fifty eight the week of March 18, 2000. It later soared to number one the week of June 17, 2000.

The feat was not only awesome, but historic—the track became the first song in the history of Billboard to reach number one based solely on the strength of its radio airplay. The track peaked in the top five of multiple countries:

  1. United States – #1
  2. The Netherlands – #3
  3. Norway – #5
  4. United Kingdom – #5
  5. Germany – #5
  6. Belgium – #5
