Aaliyah - A Girl Like You Lyrics & Traduction
One in a Million is the second studio album by American singer Aaliyah. One in a Million was well received by most critics, including Rolling Stone , who named it the 90th best album of the s.
Within a few months, the album proved Aaliyah's breakthrough and a major milestone in the careers of Missy Elliott and Timbaland. It was certified double Platinum on June 16, One in a Million has sold over three million copies in the United States and 8 million copies worldwide. In , the album was re-released in Germany with altered artwork, and again in It included the standard 17 tracks, plus the bonus song "Come Over".
After Barry Hankerson, Aaliyah's uncle, obtained a distribution deal with Jive Records , he signed her to his Blackground Records label at the age of Kelly , who became her mentor, as well as the lead songwriter and producer for her debut album Age Ain't Nothing but a Number. The album was certified double Platinum by the RIAA ,  and it sold three million copies in the United States and six million copies worldwide.
Kelly and that it was hard to get producers for One in a Million. I got a lot of support from my fans and that inspired me to put that behind me, be a stronger person, and put my all into making One in a Million.
Initially, Puff Daddy was to helm One in a Million , but the songs that the pair collaborated on were never finished. I had to leave, because I had to go to Atlanta to record with Jermaine Dupri. Once the two producers were on board they were asked by Atlantic records to create the initial sound for the album.
According to King "We came in right as she got her budget ready to go. Vincent [Herbert] and I were the first people she called, we were the first group. They wanted us to go in and build a sound. We built a sound and it was a departure from R.
When she arrived to Atlanta neither of the producers had any material to present to her during that time. I knew she was coming to Atlanta, and we had nothing prepared at the time". For the album Aaliyah wanted to record songs that were "simplified" and "really good" and she worked with Dupri and Lowe in Atlanta for about three to four days on songs.
In the midst of transitioning to a new record label Aaliyah was very anxious about all of new the changes that was happening, according to Billboard "in a press release accompanying the album, she admitted to being a little anxious about jumping from Jive to Atlantic and changing up her sound, but that uncertainty never filters into the music".
Sensual is being in tune with your sensual self. Sexy, I mean that's in the eye of the beholder, such as beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
So if people term it sexy, it's different. So I just think it's being sensual, I would rather term it as that. One in a Million was recorded from August through  with Craig Kallman, Barry Hankerson and Jomo Hankerson serving as the album's executive producers. In an interview Aaliyah stated, "I wanted some real party songs, so when my uncle played me that [original track], I thought of how I could make it different.
Once Aaliyah signed with Atlantic she and Atlantic Records chairman Craig Kallman discussed that it was important to find innovative producers who wasn't dominating the music charts to produce the album. And one day, this young kid came in. His name was Tim Mosley. I said I think this could be your muse to really create something special.
And they hit it off". After hearing the song she thought that record was the best thing that she ever heard. Once I said that, I didn't have to say anything else. Everything they brought me was the bomb. Aside from recording songs with Timbaland and Missy at Vanguard studios, Aaliyah also recorded songs with producer Craig King at that same studio. We started to work on the track, writing lyrics.
Due to unforeseen circumstances he was unable to complete the work, so he enlisted producer Daryl Simmons to replace him instead. The album artwork and overall packaging for One in a Million was shot by Marc Baptiste who had previously photographed Aaliyah's cover shoot for Seventeen magazine. They were really good friends back then. She introduced us at the Mercer Hotel.
After the meeting, I got the call that she really wanted me to shoot the album cover for One in a Million ". According to Baptiste "I wanted to keep her real. She was a down to Earth person. I wanted to keep it street chic and play off her beauty".
The album opens with an "alarm call" from the Jungle inspired intro track "Beats 4 Da Streets" and it features commentary from Missy Elliot. Throughout the intro Missy repeatedly calls Aaliyah's name and tells her to wake up. The ninth track "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" has been described as a "carefree anthem for the summertime block party". In an effort to generate visual awareness for the album Aaliyah's record label began to run advertisements on June July 8 on cable channels such as BET and The Box.
In UK, the song also performed moderately well, peaking at number 21 on the UK singles chart when it was originally released by itself. In the song was re-released with "One in a Million" as a double A-side single where it reached a new peak position at number In her review for Vibe magazine, music critic Dream Hampton said that Aaliyah's "deliciously feline" voice has the same "pop appeal" as Janet Jackson's and is complemented by the producers' funky, coherent tracks.
While R. Kelly produced Aaliyah's debut with a one-dimensional musical vision, One in a Million's production posse which includes Jermaine Dupri and Timbaland dips into a languid and seductive trip hop on the title track; then stutters jungle rhythm on 'Beats 4 da Streets' and 'Heartbroken. One in a Million debuted at number 20 on the Billboard chart, selling 40, copies during the week of September 14, Four months later after being certified gold the album was certified Platinum on February 5, On June 16, four months after being certified platinum the album was certified double platinum.
