It's been almost two decades, but Aaliyah's death is still shaking the lives of those who were closest to her. The young singer, actor, and dancer lost her life in a tragic plane crash after shooting her video for "Rock The Boat" — a song which, like many of her others, became a chart-topping success. Rapper, producer, and songwriter Missy Elliott was one of Aaliyah's closest friends when she died, and she tweeted a heartfelt message on this year's anniversary. Elliott mourned and celebrated her friend, as she has pretty much every year since her loss.
Here is her tweet.
