- Awesome Music
- Base Breaker: Not Aaliyah herself, but rapper Drake's involvement in releasing some of her posthumous music in 2012 has earned him a lot of hate from Aaliyah fans. It doesn't help that he featured himself on some of the tracks and didn't involve Timbaland and Missy Elliott at all, despite being her longtime collaborators and close friends.
- Fandom Rivalry: Aaliyah vs. Beyoncé, or Rihanna. Or pretty much any female R&B artist that benefited from her success. Overlaps with Dead Artists Are Better.
- Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Timbaland perfected his electronic-sounding production style on One in a Million, and it's a staple in R&B today.
- Signature Song: "Try Again", "Rock the Boat"
- Too Cool to Live
