Music Minisode: Aaliyah "If Your Girl Only Knew" (1996)
Play • 32 min

We’re shaking things up today with a surprise music video minisode! This time, we’re taking it back to 1996 with the one and only Baby Girl, Aaliyah. "If Your Girl Only Knew,” penned by Missy Elliott and Timbaland, was the first single off her sophomore album, One in a Million. Blaire breaks down this transformative era in Aaliyah’s career, and how this video was a true makeover moment for Aaliyah in more ways than one. On the fashion side, she began to come into her own sense of style, pairing her signature tomboy vibe with midriff tops and belly chains. Then, Marie talks about how stylist David De La Cruz fitted Aaliyah in a leather motorcycle mama look, and the crème de la crème accessory, the Vivienne Westwood armor ring, which is, of course, a serious obsession on this pod. Tune in now to enjoy this 'lil quickie!
