Happy Birthday Aaliyah! The singer would have celebrated her 34th birthday today.

It has been 11 years since the young entertainer was killed in a plane crash, along with eight others, after filming the music video "Rock the Boat." It was a devastating loss of a young artist that was just coming into her own. Many still speculate what she could have done, if she had lived. Would she have been the next Janet Jackson?

Aaliyah became a hot topic in the news last year when talks of Drake's plans to release an album of unreleased tracks. With both Missy and Timbaland denying any knowledge of or plans to participate in this release, a lot of critics expressed very strong feelings against it.

In honor of the singer's birthday. We've pulled together some of our favorite Aaliyah videos. Sit back and take a trip down memory lane and enjoy.

Help us remember Aaliyah today. Share your favorite memories and songs in the comments. If you were rocking the side swept bangs, low slung jeans with boxers peeking out and sunglasses in high school because you were such a big fan, let us know that too. Also, let us know your thoughts on this new album with Drake. Is it appropriate?
