In honor of her 33rd birthday, Aaliyah’s “Try Again” is today’s daily throwback!
Produced by Timbaland, “Try Again” was the lead the single from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack. Debuting on the Hot 100 in March 2000, “Try Again” peaked at number one on June 17, 2000, becoming Aaliyah’s first and only number one single on the chart. Its music video, directed by Wayne Isham, won two MTV Video Music Awards for Best Female Video and Best Video from a Film. “Try Again” also earned her a second Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
Did You Know?: “Try Again” was the first song to ever reach number one on the Hot 100 based solely on the strength of its radio airplay.
