Would Beyonce Have It So Easy If Aaliyah Were Still Alive?

Contributed anonymously:

was everything a real artist was suppose to be, very gifted and talented and so beautiful. If was still alive Destiny’s Child star wouldn’t be in the spot light so much and people wouldn’t be throwing Grammys and awards at her like it’s candy or something.

Everything that Beyonce is doing trust me Aaliyah would have been doing it. Beyonce is not on the same level as Aaliyah. Beyonce can sing really good but that is it. Aaliyah can sing, dance and act. Unlike Beyonce. Aaliyah was way more talented that Beyonce herself. I wander if Aaliyah was still alive will Beyonce be getting all the attention she is getting now? No she wouldn’t because Aaliyah would have been in every female artist way. She would have been on top of the game knocking everyone out of the way. People should stop kissing Beyonce’s ass acting like she is they best thing that ever came into the music business…because she is not. Specially for someone that just shakes their butt through the whole performance showing their g-string and screaming and yelling.

    No, Beyonce can sing better than her and she can dance and act. Don’t focus on what could have been, obviously god chose that she would pass so don’t just make up stuff that you don’t know. I don’t hate Aaliyah, I think she should rest in peace rather than be compared to someone that can’t be compared too because one is not with us and the other is.

  2. delaree says:

    Dear Aaliyah I really miss you. You were the one that had everybody loving you and your song. Well, you are in a safer place.

  3. Ara says:

    Aaliyah made some good music and was a good entertainer, but I don’t think she would have affected Bey’s career one way or the other. She’s gone so we will never know.

  4. LiyahStan says:

    Aaliyah was the better singer, dancer, and for sure the better actress. I think she would give Beyonce a run for her money

  5. That good good says:

    Two different beauties, two different performers, if I could compare anyone to the late talented Aaliyah it would be Keri Hilson, Timbaland said it himself, that’s the reason he signed Keri to Mosley Music Group

  6. dashae j says:

    Aaliyah is gone and I don’t think its fair to compare “what could have been” because we actually don’t know .

  7. diamondz says:

    No, I hate to say this but Aaliyah will have had to take a backseat with girls from the late 90′s just like (Brandy,Monica,Mya etc.)

  8. ASHLEY says:

    BEYONCE SHAKES HER BUTT TO MUCH (GETTING OLD) AALIYAH COULD SING DANCE AND ACT TOO (FYI) SHE WAS SUPPOSE TO BE IN THE MATRIX, STATE PROPERTY AND HONEY BUT JESSICA ALBA DID THE ROLE AFTER AALIYAH DIED. IF YOU THINK AALIYAH CAN’T SING CHECK OUT HER SONG STREET THING SHE HIT SOME HIGH NOTES TO SAY SHE WAS ONLY 15 YEARS OLD.
    R.I.P BABYGIRL

  9. Beyonce sucks says:

    To all of you who believe that Beyonce is amazing, think again and open your eyes!!!
    She cannot sing, dance or act. she should have stayed with DC. Beyonce cannot compare to Aaliyah whatsoever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Don’t you stop to think about how Aaliyah died. Hmm her plane crashed… How rare is it to find or hear bout a plane crashing around the world. and yet, the plane that crashed was Aaliyah’s. Maybe she was more than just a singer, actress, dancer. maybe there was a message behind all of her music…. this goes deeper, but I will not get into it.

    cbsnews.com/stories/2003/11/19/entertainment/main584494.shtml

    here’s an article about how the pilot of her plane was high of crack and was under the influence of alcohol.

    would YOU ever think about driving a car high and drunk.
    would YOU ever risk your job, family, security driving drunk or high.
    so why would this pilot fly ‘under the influence’?

    Aaliyah is/was/will always be better than Beyonce.
    Screw Jay-z and Beyonce*

    R.I.P Aaliyah and Pac

    *do your research*

  10. C.J. says:

    Beyonce has talent, but her best talent is being an entertainer as far shaking her butt, swinging her hair, and looking good for the cameras (with make-up on). Don’t get me wrong she can hold a note, and sometimes yells for one minute to make people think that she can blow, but that’s all she can do as far as singing goes. On the other hand Aaliyah could sing too, but she had a little bit soul in her beautiful soft voice than Beyonce has in her, well, Beyonce voice. See, You have to ask yourself a question like, brothers, who would you rather want to sing to you at night, or, bruthaz and sistaz, who takes you to a beautiful place in your mind when you hear them sing.
    To me I would say Aaliyah because she had a nice, smooth, and beautiful singing voice that can take you places unlike Bey. But honestly, there were way more talented more singers and dancers than both Beyonce and Aaliyah (when she was alive). Examples, singers, Mariah Carey, Shanice Wilson, Chante Moore, & Other Great singers, and then entertainers, Janet Jackson, Madonna, TLC, & other great performers.

    R.I.P. Aaliyah, Left Eye, Pac, Biggie, Luther, Ray Charles, James Brown, Levert Brothers, Bernie Mac, Issac Hayes, & Now The Great & Best Michael Jackson.

    We Miss All You So Much!

    Love,

  11. Beyonce who? says:

    There would be no Beyonce if Aaliyah was here.END.

  12. Sal says:

    Aaliyah was good and everything I love her , but Beyonce did better

  13. MsJazzUnique says:

    We can really only sit and dream or imagine what Aaliyah would have been doing right now. But the way things were going for her while she WAS HERE was exceptionally well. She was a singer/dancer/model/and actress. And she never once let the “celebrity fever” get to her head. She remained the same girl that you grew up with on the streets, even with all the sexuality and pressure going on in Hollywood. Beyonce has more of a “diva, beyond the best” attitude about her..if you see her live performances and the way she acts out in public she kind of has this aura that she’s the sh**. Which there’s nothing wrong with that, but at times she acts more or less as if she was just this queen of all the musical artists out here. That’s something that Aaliyah didn’t do. She did have a little bit of diva in her, but she never made her self seem like she was above and beyond anyone else whether it was a fan or another singer or whomever. This post is very unfair, seeing as Aaliyah isn’t here to show us what she could have been doing. Aaliyah was THE ONE from 1994-2001, no one can deny that. She was the “IT” girl, modeling for Tommy Hilfiger, she made cameo appearances in music videos, she was part of Missy Elliot’s Superfriends Clique, Her very 1st album went GOLD as did her 2nd album which went on to become PLATINUM and SILVER something that no other female singer has been able to accomplish since her death. But NOW Beyonce is the “IT” girl. As is Rihanna. We can’t really sit up and say that Aaliyah would have been far better than Beyonce or Beyonce would knock Aaliyah out of the water with her talent because it’s all speculation on Aaliyah’s behalf. But what we can all gladly stop and say is that if you put on a track such as; If Your Girl Only Knew, At Your Best, Back and Forth, Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, One In A Million..etc, she is still very relevant and popular in today’s music era. Her music can still rank up there with Ciara, Beyonce, Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole.. her music was made where even 10 or 11 yrs from now it can sound brand new.

  14. Brooklyn33 says:

    Aaliyah was so beautiful and talented, and she was also humble and wholesome. She was an angel and she had her own style. She didn’t have to shake her butt and be slutty to sell songs. Beyonce can sing but she don’t got nothing on Aaliyah. If Aaliyah was still here, she would be number one. Jay z was in love with her just like the rest of the world. I miss her so much. Every time I listen to one of her songs or look at one of her pictures, I want to cry. My niece is named after her. She was truly one of a kind. There will never be another like her. I love her and I miss her and I will never forget her. RIP Aaliyah! We miss you and will love you always.1

  15. Aaliyah's fan says:

    No Beyonce is not better and she never was Aaliyah can act, sing and dance better than Beyonce. Beyonce is good and all but Aaliyah was great RIP Aaliyah

  16. Amy says:

    I think Aaliyah & Beyonce would’ve battled in the music charts because they both have decent voices and can sing extremely well, with dancing I have to give Aaliyah has more skill while Beyonce is a bit of a one note, but I think as far as making movies, Beyonce has no where near the talent of what Aaliyah had. I guarantee, Aaliyah would’ve been the one playing Deena Jones in the film Dreamgirls instead of Beyonce and even though Aaliyah had only two films, she showed that she was worthy of a Academy Award.

    All in all, I think Beyonce would’ve still been famous, but her fame would not have been as huge as it is now.

  17. aaliyahfan says:

    Beyonce would be behind for me but we will never know Aaliyah was not here long enough

  18. maya yessa says:

    i don’t get what the sentence means. What do they mean “would Beyonce have it so easy if Aaliyah were still alive”? Aaliyah is still alive,she never went anywhere far.and Beyonce would never have it even though if Aaliyah’s dead or not.oh my gosh my cousin just play “sell me candy” by Rihanna Fenty, and it bring tears to my eyes when it say would Beyonce have it? Sell me candy is a wonderful adorable song I think that Rihanna should make a video for it to show off the best song of her from the album “good girl gone bad”.and umbrella ain’t the best.sell me candy is.

  19. Renee D says:

    Yeah so true on so many levels , I Hate Comparing the late Aaliyah , True she would have been really big and mainstream , but no she wouldn’t affect Beyonce’s career , .

    And actually Aaliyah was to appear in

    1.The Matrix Reloaded (2002)
    2.State Property (2002)
    3.Honey (2003)
    4.The Matrix Revolutions (2003)
    5.Cat Woman (2004)

    And she was to Film Her 3 videos

    1. I Care 4 U
    2. Don’t know what to tell ya
    3. 4 Paged Letter

    So yeah if that’s how Aaliyah’s career was heading she would’ve been a little bigger then Beyonce , but Beyonce is still doing good,

    And at the time Aaliyah was

    Nominated for 6 Grammys
    Won 4 Grammy
    8 Movie Nominations
    4 Movie Wins

    And Aaliyah’s Net worth at the time was 45,000,000
    And Beyonce’s was 26,000,000

    So yeah based on what I just said I think you should know who would have been better .

  20. yUNqB0tt says:

    HONESTLY, AALIYAH WAS THE IT GIRL WHEN SHE WAS OUT, AND ALREADY BEING CALLED A QUEEN OF RNB AND GREATS LIKE MICHAEL AND JANET AND STEVIE WONDER WANTED TO WORK WITH HER AND GAVE HER COMPLIMENTS. BUT WHEN SHE DIED, IT GAVE WAY FOR BEYONCE AS A SOLO ACT. BEYONCE TALENTED BUT OVERRATED AS HELL. SHE GETS HER BUTT KISSED AND CANT REALLY SING TO ME. SHE GOTTA BIG VOICE BUT THAT’S IT. NO PERSONALITY BEHIND HER VOICE OR MUSIC OR IN GENERAL. SHE IS A GOOD ENTERTAINER, THAT SHE IS, BUT SHE MOSTLY JUST GOOD CAUSE HER ENERGY. SHAKING WEAVE AND BOOTY SHAKING AIN’T PERFORMING, LET ALONE YELLING. AALIYAH’S ENTERTAINMENT SKILLS WERE MORE SMOOTH AND CALM, A DIFFERENT STYLE. AT DA APOLLO, WHEN SHE CAME TO THE STAGE, FANS RUSHED TO STAGE AND THE WHOLE APOLLO WAS ON THEIR FEET, MIND YOU APOLLO BIGGER THAN ANY SHOW BEYONCE PERFORMED AT, EVEN GRAMMYS. PLUCK THEN, AALIYAH AND BRANDY AND MONICA HAD COMPETITION AS WITH MARIAH AT HER BEST, JANET AND MICHAEL AND MADONNA AT HER BEST, THEY DIDN’T WIN GRAMMYS OR HAVE EVERY AWARD THROWN TO THEM. NOT TO MENTION, BEYONCE IS THE IT GIRL AND HAVE NO COMPETITION, BESIDES CIARA IN HER GOODIES ERA AND RIHANNA IN HER UMBRELLA ERA. AALIYAH WAS THE IT GIRL, WINNING EVERYTHING AT EVERY AWARD SHOW. WITH GRAMMYS, YOU HAVE TO BE HUGE HIT, BEYONCE COLLABORATED WITH JAY-Z AND THAT’S HOW SHE GOT GRAMMY BOOSTED. MONICA AND BRANDY WON GRAMMYS TOGETHER, BUT AALIYAH WORKED ALONE, BESIDES MISSY AND TIMBALAND PRODUCING. SHE WOULDN’T BE WHERE BRANDY AND MONICA WERE CAUSE BRANDY AND MONICA DID THE SAME MUSIC AS EVERYONE ELSE, AND WASN’T ENTERTAINERS OR PERFORMERS. AALIYAH WAS URBAN HIP HOP AND RNB AND FUTURISTIC, DIFFERENT AND A GOOD ENTERTAINER, WHO DIDN’T NEED SPECIAL EFFECTS. THAT’S WHAT PUT HER AMONG THEM AND DEVELOPED HER INTO A QUEEN. FYI, MONICA AND BRANDY BETTER THAN ANY ARTIST OUT, AND DIDN’T FADE, THEY JUST CHOOSE TO STAY REAL TO WHAT THEY IS, FULL BLOWN RNB AND NOT DEGRADE THEM SELF LIKE BEYONCE AND RIHANNA. YOU GOTTA RESPECT THAT. LONG STORY SHORT, AALIYAH SINGS BETTER THAN BEYONCE, LISTEN TO I REFUSE, 1 IN A MILLION, THE ONE I GAVE MY HEART TO, AT YOUR BEST. ACT BETTER, ROMEO MUST DIE, QUEEN OF THE DAMNED, NON SINGING ROLES. DANCING, ANY VIDEOS FROM HOT LIKE FIRE TO TRY AGAIN TO WE NEED A RESOLUTION TO ROCK THE BOAT N MORE THAN A WOMAN. AND PRODUCED SOUNDTRACK THAT WENT PLATINUM. BEYONCE JUST WRITES SONGS, THAT’S THE ONLY THING SHE HAS ON AALIYAH. BEYONCE WOULD STILL BE POPULAR, BUT AALIYAH WOULD PROBABLY BE WHERE LADY GAGA IS, MEANING BEYONCE COLLABORATES WITH BIGGEST COMPETITION. AALIYAH HAS MORE INTERNATIONAL APPEAL BECAUSE OF VOICE AND ACTING AND DANCING ABILITY ON TOP OF PERSONALITY AND LOOKS, WHILE BEYONCE JUST MARKETABLE BECAUSE OF DEPENDENCE ON DESTINY’S CHILD AND JAY-Z WIFE, LET ALONE LOOKS AND “SINGING ABILITY”.

  21. yUNqB0tt says:

    I MEANT THAT THE ONLY THING BEYONCE HAS ON AALIYAH IS THAT SHE WRITES HER OWN SONGS.

  22. jb says:

    yUNqB0tt

    Not exactly Beyonce is constantly being sued for songs she stole or thought she written herself.

  23. Aaliyah And Xavier says:

    NOPE NOT EVEN BEYONCE DOES NOT WRITE HER OWN SONGS!!! Maybe 1 or 2 but Aaliyah has written more then that, or at least contributed lyrics and sounds, and of course the singing…

  24. annomous says:

    lol you people need to get your fu**ing head out of your asses for real.

    Aaliyah’s plain crashed RJ … she had a boyfriend I forget who … but was good friends with Jay Z.
    Jay Z and Beyonce are together Beyonce can jump off the face of the earth for all I care.
    lmfao on the fu**in real.
    think about it .
    Beyonce knew she had some serous competition ,
    Isn’t funny how Aaliyah’s “boyfriend” chilled with Jay Z and Jay Z was with Beyonce ..
    not a good thing to think About still..
    stick to your own conspiracies lmfao.

  25. annomous says:

    … after Aaliyah died.
    Beyonce took her place..
    think about it

  26. stfu haters says:

    Comparing Aaliyah to Beyonce is irrelevant now here’s something to think about Aaliyah’s career began way before Beyonce so of course her future seemed brighter than Beyonce’s. Aaliyah WAS an amazing talent but do you think if she was still here that’s what she was supposed to do. She would have grossed as much money or popularity as Beyonce did and still is.. Aaliyah was already an accomplished superstar by the time Destiny’s Child was out (and Aaliyah was still around) while DC was still Bringing in lots of bread and awards…now I love Aaliyah don’t get me wrong but look at the facts Aaliyah began at 14 yrs old her step-aunt was Gladys Knight and her uncle owned his own label…and as far as the singing goes…. Beyonce look “It’s all in her voice—a superhuman instrument capable of punctuating any beat with goose-bump-inducing whispers or full-bore diva-roars talented” she earns frequent comparison to such artists as Mariah Carey…Aaliyah’s “silky vocals are more agile than those of self-proclaimed queen of hip-hop soul Mary J. Blige Aaliyah described her sound as “street but sweet” and she was proclaimed as the princess of r&b…but as heard on t.v n in magazine’s Beyonce was proclaimed as the queen of r&b its in the facts people look it up

  27. sasha says:

    Beyonce’s career would be ruined because all she does is flaunt herself and be nasty. Aaliyah is way better than Beyonce she focused on real things that go on in life and she isn’t nasty and shes sings better then nasty Beyonce.

  28. tia says:

    I think Aaliyah is better way better she do act better than Beyonce, Beyonce is a talented woman who can dance but Aaliyah is way better we all know it she is even more pretty

  29. TKW says:

    Some of you are saying Aaliyah was the it girl and she was the Queen of R&B before she died and was like Janet, I do not remember that. I was 17 years old when she first stepped on the scene and 24 when she passed, watched her since she came out, she was a beautiful , and very gifted young woman, but she did not have the status of Beyonce or Janet. They both had/have different styles in music and dancing. Yes Janet wanted to do a song with her but just because she wanted to do a song with her does not mean that Janet thought Aaliyah was so much like her, because they wasn’t, they both had different styles in music and dancing. To be honest, the most popular female entertainer during the late 90′s and early 2000′s that was compared to Janet was Britney Spears and she did have more of Janet’s style in music and dancing because both of them are Pop, and Britney Spears was crowned the princess of pop, and why do you all think, isn’t Janet the Queen? If you all were thinking straight you all would realize the reason why she is selling and rated highly is because of the millions of albums she is selling and the people are buying her music, and if her songs are highly played on the radio apparently people are requesting it. She is highly rated because of her fans. Aaliyah was a very gifted young woman, we will never know what God had for her where she would be right now. Honor her for what she when she was here, Beyonce and all the other female entertainers are here and are very gifted women give them some credit, while they are still here on this earth. Aaliyah is truly missed, RIP Aaliyah.

  30. JJ says:

    Beyonce was not a TRUE entertainer!!! Aaliyah was. Aaliyah was a much better actress and dancer. Plus her voice was smooth and relaxing without overdoing anything. Bey tries too hard. For Aaliyah it was all raw, natural talent. Plus if it weren’t for Aaliyah coming and blazing the trail for other teenage acts to be signed there would not be people like Bey and Mya cause they would have been laughed at as teens. R.I.P Princess of Urban r&b Aaliyah Dana Haughton!!!!

  31. criss says:

    Yes she would have it easy Aaliyah is like Ciara she could dance really good but her singing wasn’t the best Beyonce would outshine just like she is doing all of these other chicks in the game and that’s real sh** !!!

  32. GERALDINE FRANCISCO says:

    TOO SAD IF THE HAD LOST A BEAUTIFUL SINGER AND AN EXCELLENT
    DANCER LIKE AALIYAH.AALIYAH CANNOT BE COMPARE TO ANYONE EITHER BEYONCE TOO.FOR SURE SHE WAS AND WILL REMAIN THE QUEEN OF THE R&B.BUT GOD WANTED A GORGEOUS ANGEL BESIDE HIM.AND GOD HAD CHOSE OUR AALIYAH.

  33. TKW says:

    @JJ Aaliyah was not the one that blazed the trail for other teenage artists are you forgetting about Tracie Spencer, who was still popular when Aaliyah first came out.

  34. TKW says:

    At my first post I was referring to Bey, she is where she is because of her fans.

  35. yUNGB0tt says:

    @TKW – LOL. THAT’S THE TRUTH. BRITNEY WAS THE IT GIRL OVERALL, BUT AALIYAH WAS THE IT GIRL. THAT’S WHAT I MEANT . SHE WAS SOUGHT AFTER. LIKE NOW WHILE BEYONCE THE IT BLACK GIRL, LADY GAGA IS THE IT GIRL RITE NOW OVERALL.

  36. yUNGB0tt says:

    @tkw – I MEANT AALIYAH WAS THE IT BLACK GIRL, BUT NOT OVERALL.

  37. Sunshine says:

    I think that if Aaliyah was alive it would have made it harder for Beyonce to be the Beyonce we know today. Even though I’m not really a huge Beyonce fan, she is a hard worker and a good singer and dancer or as I refer to her MJ3.0 (FYI, Janet is MJ2.0), and of course she doesn’t really have any competition…so the accolades she gets are very much deserved. Beyonce cannot act though, Aaliyah was a better actress but there are very few “great” singer/actresses, I can only think of Diana Ross, Barbara Streisand, Cher and now Jennifer Hudson. Janet Jackson is ok, Aaliyah was ok but acting is not Beyonce forte. In terms of marketing, comparatively speaking, Aaliyah had a naturally prettier face, real long nice hair (Beyonce has a better body) and had her own style and also she started off as an individual performer (so she didn’t have to transition from a group to solo artiste) and she definitely was the better actress, so I think Aaliyah would have been bigger if she didn’t die. But for now MJ3.0 has no competition.

  38. Aaliyah jr. says:

    If Aaliyah were still alive…well she isn’t but if she was all of these industry hoes including Beyonce, Ciara, you name them, would HAVE to take a back seat to the Queen. Aaliyah had too much spirit for this world that we live in today. She wasn’t phony enough like the remaining raggedy hoes and instead has moved on to a better place…Hopefully that demon Sasha hasn’t eaten her soul. Man that’s one annoying devil.

  39. music lover 65 says:

    okay here I go so listen… Aaliyah was a beautiful talented singer but wasn’t the best at that time Britney Spears was kicking butt and even if she were alive she would not change the course of Beyonce’s career Beyonce came out and everyone loved her she rocked the charts and gained success and no Aaliyah would have not acted as Diana Ross instead because her voice does not go with it stop hating Beyonce why do you hate her Aaliyah didn’t hate Beyonce so why do you and Beyonce is just a elite performer and through hard work she became the queen and has no competition and in these days Beyonce is the “it girl” lady gaga is just a side note although very popular has not gained huge success as other artists especially Beyonce

  40. Tiffany; AaliyahFanFOREVER says:

    okay Aaliyah probably wouldn’t have affected Beyonce’s career but she still would have been a lot BIGGER ! Seeing how most of Beyonce’s writer’s are fans of Aaliyah[ex. Ne-Yo/Keri Hilson] if Aaliyah was here I’m sure some of those songs would have went to her even though Static was her main writer. & since Drake is a die hard Aaliyah fan I bet my bottom dollar Unthinkable would have been for her instead of Alicia Keys; not dissing A. Keys but I’m sure he would have wrote that for her. Music, Dance, & Acting wise Aaliyah actually had a passion for it. Beyonce acts just because Hollywood is throwing scripts her way. Aaliyah’s class was way above Beyonce. Her dancing was something she was passionate about which is why she studied dance in High School. & honestly I’m tired of seeing Beyonce every 5 seconds which leads me to say Aaliyah was the type of person to take a hiatus so we wouldn’t get tired of her & still come back and be on top. Just like her break from One In A Million to the Aaliyah album. She was gone for 4 years and still was the IT GIRL. I don’t think she would have been left in the dust with Brandy in Monica because she was real close with Roc-A-Fela and they were the ish in the early 00′s. Her movie roles were lined up. She was about to open her own clothing store. with that being said if Aaliyah was still here she would be a lot bigger than Beyonce, although Beyonce would still have a career. She just wouldn’t have a larger status than Aaliyah

  41. Tiabiacha91 says:

    I am a fan of Aaliyah’s, and I honestly think she would have been bigger than Beyonce naturally, and that Beyonce would have had to try harder each time. She can sing her ass off, but she’s overrated now. Aaliyah wouldn’t have been overrated because she waited a while and then came back. They are two totally different performers, but when you compare, there is no comparison because Aaliyah was that real spirit. She was a singer, dancer, actress, model, and so is Bey, but Aaliyah’s that natural and Bey is not.

  42. MR. 100 says:

    WHOA WHOA WHOA!!!!…….First of all some of y’all need to stay on topic!!!..But anyhow…. Let’s take a look at something real quick…. When Aaliyah was alive.. Was Beyonce in the industry??…YES!…When Bey started..did she act alone or did she have two other females to back her up??….TWO OTHER FEMALES!!….When Aaliyah was alive…Was Beyonce compared to Aaliyah den?? or was it when Aaliyah died???…..WHEN AALIYAH DIED!……So whats the debate??….Its CLEAR!!….Aaliyah was so hot then that TEN YEARS LATER she still has BEYONCE FANS TRYING to put Beyonce on the same pedestal as her!!!…..SMH!!!…….Aaliyah is what Beyonce is trying to be!!…Come on now….She couldn’t even dance when she started….HAD RHYTHM….But couldn’t dance!!!…..She truly ain’t start dance FOR REAL till Ciara hit the streets wit “Goodies”…. She was off the top compared to Aaliyah just with her style of dance!!…When Beyonce saw that she obviously felt threatened cause she SHOW stepped them dance skills up!!…. BUT WHY MR. 100??….Why did Beyonce step up her dance skills cause of Ciara? …..BECAUSE HER ASS SEEN DAT AALIYAH IN DAT DANCE SKILL Ciara got AND SAID…NOT AGAIN…….I will not have another artist stepping on ma toes!!…..Aaliyah was CLEARLY on top of her game…..Bey ain’t kill er when she was alive and she definitely WOULD NOT sit Aaliyah down if she was here for 2010!!…..She would have only gotten better wit more experience and competition!!!……VERY DISAPPOINTED IN SOME OF YOU!!!

  43. MR. 100 says:

    Beyonce good DO NOT get me wrong!!!….But as far as her being better than Aaliyah???…… you might as well kill yourself you think she would be!!!………..WRONG!!!…..SHE WOULDN’T BE!!…SHE NEVER WAS!!!….I’M GETTING MAD FOR REAL!!!

  44. Shanice says:

    Y’all know y’all need to stop. Aaliyah was my FIRST favorite singer, like I didn’t have favorites until Aaliyah died. She died, her album sales shot up, her music was in heavy rotation, and her name was on everyone’s lips. When I heard CIL in 2003, IT WAS A WRAP!!!!! People who say Beyonce only shakes her butt, I bet they’ve never been to or seen a Beyonce concert. The ones that says all she does is scream, again, y’all must not have been to any of her concerts or turn the TV when she performs on award shows. As far as acting, I must not know any better, b/c I don’t see what’s so bad about Beyonce’s acting. How many Grammys does Aaliyah have? None. Destiny’s Child had already had 3 Grammys, for songs Beyonce wrote and sung lead on. Live performances, Beyonce and Aaliyah had different dance styles, but as far as putting on a show, the total package, that’s BEYONCE. Vocals, dancing, production, passion, heart….Beyonce wins hands down! Beyonce WAS Destiny’s Child, and at the time of her death, they were bigger than Aaliyah. I LOVE AALIYAH, I tell my sister who was born the same year, I’d trade her with Aaliyah in a heartbeat, but from a music industry major in college, Beyonce would have still been the top bitch in the game. Aaliyah would have been bigger than Keri, Rihanna(not sure about that one), Ciara. The only person who benefited from Aaliyah’s death was Ash**ty(Ashanti). To the left, to the left with that mess.

  45. fan aaliyah says:

    No; Beyonce wouldn’t have it so easy if Aaliyah were still alive because Aaliyah was about to explode. If she (Aaliyah: Princess of R&B/Queen of Urban Pop) was still around; she would probably be competing with the likes of Lady Gaga, Beyonce & probably Rihanna. Maybe by now she would’ve surpassed them.

  46. anonymus says:

    I think Aaliyah would’ve rule over Beyonce

  47. nono says:

    Ok really Beyonce would still have a career if Aaliyah was alive she still had one when Aaliyah was alive and any ways Aaliyah is overrated in terms of singing like if you say she could beat Beyonce in singing you are crazy Beyonce can sing way better than her and a lot of people I’m not sure about the dancing but I Aaliyah still was alive Beyonce would still have her career just saying it’s the truth

  48. tonyaceblue says:

    Aaliyah always will be the best R.I.P Baby girl Love you and Beyonce and Jay-Z both Suck

  49. keeping it real says:

    Aaliyah always keeps it real never shakes her butt Aaliyah was sexy as hell Beyonce just nasty Aaliyah better singer and actor and dancer and she fun to see and be around and Aaliyah if she was alive wood love to marry her Beyonce I will love to Just hit it because she a hoe

  50. Token M. says:

    I honestly think if Aaliyah was still alive, she would not be that big. Like most other artists from the late 90′s-early 2000′s, she would still be doing stuff, making CDs, maybe having a couple of hit songs. But I also feel like would have had children by now, maybe be on shows like DTWS, or have a reality series. People probably wouldn’t be lining up to see her in concert, but she would still be popular. I disagree with the negative Beyonce statements; Beyonce is a great performer!!!!!

  51. danny2010 says:

    Aaliyah was One In A Million by way Aaliyah would never do a reality series because she don’t like putting her business on the TV Aaliyah was a 100% real she always keep her Life private and Mariah Carey is from the 90′s she’s doing very well and albums still sales and she Rich as hell and Beyonce from 90′s and she’s doing very and she’s Rich as hell and Aaliyah albums would be still selling and always be loved because she can SING and ACT and DANCE so Stop the hating Beyonce fan girl “LOL”

  52. Cherrique says:

    I love both Beyonce and Aaliyah . I think that Aaliyah did her thing , while she was here . if she was still alive , I think that her and Beyonce would probably be on the same level . they are both awesome singers . Beyonce is doing her thing and Aaliyah did her thing . I love them both and they are both incredible ! So just stop trying to start drama people :) Rest in Paradise Aaliyah Dana Haughton ,( 1979 – 2001 ) You will always be missed ! <3

  53. jasminej says:

    First off, no disrespect to the late great Aaliyah but, Beyonce has a better voice than Aaliyah had..! Don’t get me wrong because Aaliyah was beyond beautiful and talented but you can not compare her to Beyonce because Beyonce is way more talented vocal-wise and who knows if Aaliyah would’ve still been making music, maybe she would’ve got more into acting. But no, if Aaliyah was alive Beyonce would still be as successful as she is because she continuously makes hit after hit after hit.!

  54. travon says:

    um I love both of them we need to stop saying bad things about both of them they both was very good person both of them can sing but I got to give it to Aaliyah she had but that doesn’t not mean Beyonce is bad be for real she can sing all y’all people who saying bad thing about Beyonce talking bad about her she don’t give a fu** she’s getting her money so really do you think she care what y’all think hell no she is getting paid so fu** what y’all got to say
    and Aaliyah I love you and miss you with all of my heart I use to dance to your video 24 all day and every day never went a day with out listing to you still do right now to this day

  55. miss ashley says:

    I just wanted to start off by saying that both of these beautiful, strong, and extra talented ladies should never be compared. I love Beyonce and Aaliyah for completely different reasons. They are no where near similar. Beyonce is the confident, fearless diva who can sing and dance and command a performance. that’s what I look for when I here a Beyonce record or performance. Aaliyah was just as commanding, but in a different way, she was intoxicating, soft and sweet. it’s like comparing rock n roll and r&b you don’t look for the same things when you think of the two. I don’t understand why we have to bend and twist every black entertainer against each other instead of embracing everyone for the guts and talent, sweat blood and tears they put in being the artists they are. in rock you have several successful artists and you don’t see the same bickering and ignorance that we give off all the time. bottom line these are two completely different human beings. both are equally as talented and have their own hold on the universe. what ever happened to appreciation for variety? can’t we be better than this. Let’s love on each other. Why are you all hating when they loved and respected each other?

  56. Sara says:

    For me is Aaliyah the one & only Real Queen of Urban Pop / Rnb …Aaliyah was the first Female rnb singer who danced so good in her videos …her voice is like a angel …if Aaliyah were alive Beyonce where nothing.

  57. tamia says:

    I was and still am a very big fan of the late great Aaliyah, and I really believe that if she was alive Beyonce definitely would not be getting as much recognition as she does, in all honesty she was truly an Angel, and the things you hear about Beyonce I don’t think for one min. that we would hear things like that about Aaliyah, and she lets them go unspoken of like Beyonce does. I think that the people loved Aaliyah for her, she did not have to expose her body, wear to much make up or have every other dance move with her legs open. Aaliyah was a lady and actually gave a fu** about the fans rather they be adults or kids and my personal opinion is Beyonce wouldn’t have a chance. R.I.P. Aaliyah, for Beyonce it’s almost like you left in time for her to corrupt a lot of females, not trying to hate on her I just really can’t understand why she feels she is not obligated to tell her fans whats real and whats fake as far as she is concerned.

  58. Mira says:

    If Aaliyah were still alive, there would have been a tough competition between her and Beyoncé.
    Both can sing. Both are (were) entertainers.

    But the main issue, IMHO, is not about being talented but having the ability to attract spotlights on oneself.
    I think major labels would have put A LOT of money on Aaliyah and promote her music.
    That’s what Beyoncé actually is about : marketing, heavy rotation, image, promotion. Roll out. All about putting money on someone. Talent is just a bonus eventually.
    Don’t get me wrong, Beyoncé can sing, can entertain, can dance… But that’s nothing if no one can hear her. And we need money to be heard. We need powerful producers and promoters.

    the game in music industry would’ve been different if Aaliyah were still around.

  59. doll says:

    Aaliyah was great but from the 90s early 2000 ,that was her decade. this is Beyonce decade and they both are great , different times , whether Aaliyah be alive now or not

  60. Z says:

    I don’t think Aaliyah’s persona was as big as Beyonce’s, and she definitely wasn’t as good a performer.

  61. Jason says:

    Look people need to stop with these comparisons. Not sure if you guys were born in like 99 or 2000 but this is a useless comparison between the two. Matter of fact this is what a buddy of mine had to say about this. I agree 100%:

    Beyonce still would’ve been Beyonce & Aaliyah still would’ve been Aaliyah. If she lived, Beyonce would’ve still made all of the same music she made and it would’ve sold what she sold. Beyonce didn’t replace Aaliyah because Beyonce was already 3 Destiny’s Child albums deep by 2001. This is not a good question. They weren’t in each other’s way.

  62. D says:

    I agree when it comes to acting and dancing Aaliyah takes it. However when it comes to singing it’s all about what you prefer. If you want a soft voice, then you listen to some Aaliyah but if you want power you take Beyonce. I like Aaliyah a lot, but the things Beyonce can do with her voice are amazing. I don’t think Aaliyah would have had any affect on Beyonce’s MUSIC career. IN my opinion Beyonce is a better singer. Another thing, people are always saying that they’re tired of seeing Beyonce’s face all the time…. That’s not her fault. Beyonce is probably one of the most private celebrities out there. If cameras catch her doing something than that’s all on the photographer. She doesn’t have an I’m-the-best-attitude, every time I see her she’s very sweet. Now maybe because a lot of people love her you would like think she had that attitude but we’ve got to stick with the facts. If Aaliyah were still here, sad to say, but I think she would be with the rest of the UNDER APPRECIATED 90′s artist like Brandy, Mya, and Monica. And remember Brittany Spears was doing the same if not more amount of things Aaliyah was doing the 90′s. RIP Aaliyah. We love you.

  63. Kelly says:

    Ok first off jay-z and Aaliyah was dating in 99 (bet you didn’t know that) he wanted to marry Aaliyah she turned him down in 2000 and started dating Dame that’s why him and dame was beefin…i believe Jay-Z sacrificed Aaliyah…notice how him nf bee blew up once Aaliyah died… Hype Williams shot rock da boat hype is with Jay-Z Illuminati sh**…ok aaliya was rushed from bahamas to do track with freeway n siegel..hint hint all jayzs

  64. Kelly says:

    All jayzs control smhh truth hurts…. type cathy white jayz mistress for over ten years found dead sep 2011 smhh

  65. Quran says:

    the thing is, is that..Alliyah was then and beyonce is now END OF STORY..

  66. Katja says:

    I’m from Berlin, and back in 2000, it was Aaliyah on all of the TV’s in Europe. Not Beyonce, Aaliyah was already an international star in 2001 January! She just wasn’t given enough for all of that talent. Aaliyah had 3 albums and 2 soundtrack Albums and 2 films under her belt. So it has to be Aaliyah.

  67. natalie marks says:

    Aaliyah came out in 1993 and went til 2001.. That’s pretty much 8 years… Where there’s Beyonce… 97-01 that’s only 5… Also, Aaliyah even said in an interview, She liked being a missed artist. So Aaliyah probably would have settled down in 2004 and came back in 2007 like she did in 1997… But than she had a come back in 2001… So Aaliyah all the way, even tho she took her time.. Which is always a better thing..

  68. manuel joshua says:

    Nope I’m sorry to break it to all u pathetic aliyah fans lol but the truth is she was weak and if she was still alive she would be bowing her sorry scrawny pathetic ass down to the one and only beautiful thick ass princess that runs the world! lol yeah Beyonce’s thickness alone basically blows the weak stick figure aliyah out of the water lol…

  69. manuel joshua says:

    Just the thought of ppl comparing her to beyonce makes me giggle so hard!!! The weak always die and deserve to while the strong survive and control what they please! Beyonce rules the earth right now and there’s nuthin aliyah cud have done or do to stop her…but bow her weak ass down to the most powerful and beautiful diva of all time!!! aliyah was a very weak person with no ass or thighs like the greatest…beyonce!!! lol the thickest and most sexiest and powerful diva that everyone will bow down to and obey!!!! lol

  70. manuel joshua says:

    Beyonce makes aliya look like a complete joke in every category lol especially when it comes to comparing bodies and looks lol Beyonce has an ass for days i would kill for and a set of thighs to die for!!! aliya had nothing and was nothing and will always be nothing lol Beyonce gets on stage and performs in front of millions and shakes her beautiful thick ass and thighs and then displays her pelvic thrust that i guarantee the whole world enjoys!!!!! lol except aliya lmao

  71. manuel joshua says:

    Poor aliya lol funny how she thought she was somebody until beyonce got ahold of her and destroyed her life with no mercy and took her bf lol who are now married and have a kid…awwww….Beyonce is a god!!!!

  72. Sharee says:

    People that say If Aaliyah was here Beyonce wouldn’t be anything is CRAZY.
    And Aaliyah was a whore at that. Do y’all know how many celebs SCREWED.

    She was just always so average to me.
    Her vocals are no where as strong as Beyonce…and Beyonce can do so much with her voice…different ranges, notes, genres of music.
    And on top of that…Who can dance and sing in heels during a performance of front of millions like Beyonce?!
    I’ll wait…

    And yeah compared to THEN and NOW Beyonce’s voice grew tremendously.
    She’s definitely an icon.

  73. Torsten Jerabek says:

    Beyonce this… Aaliyah that… END THIS!!!! Aaliyah was famous in the late 90′s and was on her way to super stardom in 2000+2001, and beyonce was pretty much doing well also, there both just 2 girls. Leave them be! I highly doubt they would even appreciate a page like this, stupid fans comparing all the time.

  74. Jimmy says:

    THIS IS CRAZY ….. To see THEY BOTH ARE 2 VERY DIFFERENT TYPE OF ARTIST ….. I LIKE AALIYAH A LOT HER MUSIC WAS SMOOTH AND MADE U THINK AT NIGHT WHEN U GO TO SLEEP ….. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY BEYONCE WOULD STILL HAVE BLOWN HER OUT OF THE WAY …. Just go back AND LOOK AT THEIR SHOW PRESENCE ….. AALIYAH WAS GOOD BUT B DEMAND THE STAGE …. SOME OF Y’ALL ARE DIE HEART FANS OF AALIYAH SO Y’ALL SPEAK LIKE THAT …. BUT Y’ALL NEED TO CUT IT OUT BEYONCE WILL OUT SING HER ANY DAY …. And out entertain her ….. RELAX …. RIP AALIYAH

  75. Marco Cruz says:

    Aaliyah…

    Anyone saying Beyonce has clearly never heard more than a couple Aaliyah songs… her first album she made when she was 14 years old already showcased her talent and every single album she made continued to improve and mature her sound. Aaliyah was already experimenting with new and fresh sounds and redefined what R&B really is so anything that Beyonce is producing right now is based on the works of Aaliyah. If Aaliyah was able to accomplish that before she even reached the age of 23, who knows what the future could have held. No disrespect to Beyonce because she can dance and sing amazingly but the winner between them is no question, Aaliyah.

    Rest in paradise babygirl, hope I see you there <3

  76. Tön says:

    Beyönce is nothing compared to the late Aaliyah…. Aaliyah died because of trying to speak against the Illuminati!! Her death paved way to the rise of Beyonce-trust me she is a devil….rem Tupac and MJ,they all died because they tried to speak against Illuminati…. I wont speak more lest they come after me….RIP AALIYAH… You were simply the best

  77. jAY says:

    The Hole Music Industry is fake since 60′ i loved Aaliyah too and listen to her Music all day. Beyonce is also good. But in the End , They all go to Hell !!! I mean. its so much Satanic stuff in this Music and Video clips. And I’m really sure that the Death from Aaliyah was a plan. Also MJ also Whitney Houston.. 2pac… biggie… etc etc. We have no ideas whats going on in the Music Industry full of SATANIC !! People cant tell me that the devil don’t exist!! i don’t think they do rituals and other stuff only for fun ! and it have enough evidence!! People must bee blind if they don’t see that !

    AND YES Here also ion that time in Switzerland Aaliyah was much bigger than Beyonce!

  78. Isaac says:

    I Think its Not Fair to Compare Aaliyah And Beyonce Because Bey is still alive and Aaliyah is in a better place but before Aaliyah passed Away She was about to take over with All of those acting rolls Aaliyah had and her Music Aaliyah was about to take off in the music game but then she was Killed :’(

  79. dede says:

    even though I was born when Aaliyah died in 2001 I still like her and I love her music. I like Beyonce to but she dance to hard and she is wrong for copying off of Aaliyah Aaliyah is better than her and always will be. love you Aaliyah and rip and love to your dearly mother.

  80. Nettasha says:

    Lets stop all the BITCHING about who is/was better than who. Aaliyah was then and Beyonce is now. thats the way it is. You guys cant say that if Aaliyah was still alive she would be better than Beyonce and that Beyonce would have the spotlight as she does now. The fact is how do u guys know that if Aaliyah was still alive she she would still be singing or just doing acting. The thing is you dont. Yes the 2 can act, dance,and sing, but from what i can tell u guys are judging without knowing and thats not wright. LET AALIYAH R.I.P AND LET BEYONCE KEEP DOING HER THING :)

  81. Haughton 187 says:

    AGREED I BEILIEVE AALIYAH WOULD’VE BEAT BEYONCE CAUSE ONLY FEW FEMALE ARTIST WERE OUT WHEN AAIYAH WAS ALIVE BUT I FIND IT PRETTY FUNNY THAT RIGHT AFTER AALIYAH DIED JAY Z AND BEYONCE ALL OF A SUDDEN RISE TO FAME ? HMMMM,,

  82. op says:

    I’m not sure what y’all are talking about but I remember when Aaliyah came out she was very entertaining I liked her music and creativity but she was not a strong singer especially not live And I actually saw her twice live I loved her spirit and the fact that she tried everything but you cant compare her to Beyonce at all Beyonce is a power house I’ve seen her live 7 times I don’t think Aaliyah would have had any effect on her singing career at all now Ciara would not have a solid career if baby girl was still alive because Ciara copied EVERYTHING about Aaliyah

  83. nika says:

    Both have talented y u all comparing haters let her be u all just jealous don’t judge her.. BBBB do your thing girl screw the haters hahaha

  84. tmoronza says:

    Beyonce she is the best .Because she entertain people abt show off, and people love this kind of s..t men,but u never know what was going to happen if baby girl was a life because she left us with the question mark, and she was more better than group during her time, she was the best that many people won’t forget about her short history and don’t forget that Aaliyah is not an s.t.nism and someone is. maybe during her performance she make something that can attract people u never know son u never know,u can’t trust illu..nate.AALIYAH SHE IS THE GREATEST, RIP TO BABY GIRL U WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED
