A book dissecting the life and career of late R&B star Aaliyah is reportedly in the works. The book titled Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah is scheduled for release August 17, 2021. The project will focus on the span of Aaliyah‘s life and career from her earliest beginnings singing in Detroit through to her game-changing musical era with Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and the late Static Major. It will also include a deep dive into her tumultuously abusive entanglement with R. Kelly and an intense investigation on the crash that ended her life. Fans will also receive exclusive interviews and never before told stories about her life and career.
