Personnel: Aaliyah, Tia Hawkins (vocals); Keith Henderson (guitar); Lafayette Carthon (keyboards); Timmy Allen (bass); Peter Mokran (programming); Stephanie Edwards, Stephanie Huff (background vocals).Recorded at Chicago Recording Company, Chicago, Illinois. Suprisingly enough, it no longer takes an adult to perform as an adult in today's music industry, especially one filled with so much young talent. Proving that her age has no bearing on her music's maturity, R. Kelly's protege Aaliyah debuts with AGE AIN'T NOTHING BUT A NUMBER. Aaliyah complements the album's material, appealing to both R & B and hip-hop listeners, while managing to "keep it smooth with a jazz attitude."Detroit's Aaliyah surprised the public when she succesfully hit with her first single, "Back And Forth," which found its market on the club scene. The album's other highlights are soft, mellow tunes like "At Your Best (You Are Love)," "Young Nation," "Age Ain't Nothing But A Number" and "Down With The Clique." Producing all tracks, R. Kelly definitely has a '90s swing evident on this project. Also obvious is that Kelly writes all but one song, because what fifteen-year-old can drive or make love. It's no secret that R. Kelly is the mastermind behind this endearing album. see more...

 I loved Aaliyah's music.  When I heard she passed on the radio I thought it was joke I was in disbelief. She was so young and talented. There was no one else like her lyrically and she had good choreography in her music videos. I would recommend Aaliyah's music to anyone to listen to.

Gosh! I love Aaliyah. Whenever I listen to her music I want to sing and dance and cry at the same time. Gone way too soon.
This first album is just superb. Crazy that she was only 15. But her voice was so mature, smooth, and raw. She brought a lot of passion in her music from day one, and that transferred to her acting. One can only imagine what might have been. She definitely would've gone even further though. Damn I miss her!

Can't believe she was only 15 years old when she recorded this album. My favorite song obviously is "Age ain't nothing but a number." She died much too young. :( There was still so much more she had to offer to the music world.

What can I say about this angel? I mean, I came up on her music. It was a lifestyle. The R&B game was damn strong back then. I miss it. I listen to her still to this day. She was taken too soon...

Love Aaliyah and her music was always on point. But this song "age ain't nothing but a number"was one of my least favorite songs. I felt the song was not emphasizing this importance of how young a girl​ is...

Aaliyah has and always will be one of my favorite R&B singers of all time. She was amazing in every way shape or form. Her music was great, and there has never been anyone like her. She had that amazon old school 90’s R&B which was one of the best era’s of music!
