Check out this sneak peek of Aaliyah gracing the cover of Fader Magazine for the annual icon issue. Seven years after her passing, friends remember the pop diva:

Missy Elliott

“We was gonna save the world. We was gonna change music every chance we got. We was gonna always be family. Forever.”

Damon Dash

“She was already a fashion icon, she was getting into movies, she had already planted that seed. If she was alive today she would be so relevant. I see little bits of her everywhere I look, in a lot of artists.”

Check out the back and front covers of the upcoming addition below.

Thanks Will!

    i see Ciara is commenting on her death..i wonder if she admits that if Aaliyah never lost her life, she’d have no career.

  • Marquis de Sade

    What i admired about her talent, was that she knew how to play to her vocal strengths. – In that way she never gave in to the vocal histrionics like Beyonce, Christina Aguillera and some of her other peers. She was by far on the more intelligent singers. R.I.P.

    I receieved those magazines at work a week ago. I have over twenty copies if anyone wants any. It was a nice piece on her. But am I the only one to notice that she looks different in that picture versus the other (more recent) photos?

  • 1Prettyb
