Rock the Boat - Aaliyah



Speed: 93 bpm

The DJ's Take: Strange to think today is the 10th anniversary of Aaliyah's tragic death in a plane crash after filming this video. I remember it was around then that I decided to be a dj, having lived in NYC that summer for a college internship, and hearing the news about her was shocking. She was one of my favorite artists.

Anyway, if you're doing an Aaliyah tribute at some point, remember you can mix this straight with Back and Forth; same BPM and same key. I actually did that on the last mixtape I made a few years ago, and it sounds really good.
