On the 20th anniversary of her tragic death at age 22, Aaliyah makes a return to the charts as her catalog of smooth, timeless, massively influential R&B finally hits streaming.
One in a Million, which last Friday became the first of several albums to be released for streaming and digital purchase after decades in limbo, is currently in the top 10 on the daily version of the Rolling Stone Top 200 Albums Charts at Number Eight. By Wednesday’s chart, which includes streams and digital sales from Friday through Monday, the album had seen 7.7 million on-demand audio streams in the U.S. It was also the second biggest album of the week so far by digital sales, with 6,700.
Additionally, the title track currently sits at Number 100 on the song charts and was the fourth biggest song of the week so far by digital sales. Aaliyah is on track to make a posthumous debut on the Artists 500 Chart, too, where she currently sits at Number 104 in the daily edition. (Unofficial versions of the charts are published daily, with official, finalized versions published every Monday.)
