Aaliyah Archives Exclusive: Fan Chapter from Baby Girl Better Known As Aaliyah

By Sandy

Here at we have an exclusive for all the fans during the celebration of Aaliyah's 20th Anniversary for her self-titled Red Album. We had a lot of requests asking whether or not we were able to show any contents inside of Kathy Iandoli's book Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah, and we are pleased to inform everyone that we have permission from both the publishers Simon & Shuster and the author herself, to release the Came To Give Love fan chapter! 🎉

Having read the book in its full entirety, we can honestly say that this is one of the most loving, heartfelt chapters of the book. The personal sentiment, and the reasoning behind why we as fan-pages/fan-sites do what we do, for a woman who inspires us all. The chapter ranges from OG fans (including ourselves and others you may know) who were there during the peak of Aaliyah's reign whilst being alive, as well as younger fans who express why and how much Aaliyah means to them, despite not being around during Aaliyah's tragic demise.

Every interview in this chapter will not only resonate with everyone within this fanbase, but it will also show the true, transparancy of what all the fans really feel in regards to Aaliyah's legacy 20 years on...

We hope everyone enjoys this excerpt from the book as much as we do!

Happy reading! 😊
