Best Of 00s Soul

Destiny's child
A selection of the best soul music that was made in the previous decade (2000-2009)! My favourite Destiny's Child track is probably 'Is she the reason'. I really like the Melba Moore sample upon which the song is hung. Enjoy!

After filming the music video for the single 'Rock the Boat' singer Aaliyah tragically died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. The pilot was unlicensed at the time of the accident and toxicology tests revealed that he had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his body. Aaliyah's family later filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Blackhawk International Airways, which was settled out of court.

Aaliyah's music has continued to achieve commercial success with several posthumous releases. She has sold an estimated 24 to 32 million albums worldwide. She has been credited for helping redefine contemporary R&B, pop and hip hop, earning her the nicknames "Princess of R&B" and "Queen of Urban Pop". She is listed by Billboard as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history.
