Tweet Remembers the Last Time She Saw Aaliyah: Video Interview

The R&B songbird also shares her favorite song by the late singer and fellow Missy Elliott collaborator, who we lost 15 years ago today

When Tweet was just getting her start in the industry, Aaliyah was the top R&B-pop diva and both were brought together thanks to their close work with Missy Elliott. As we remember Aaliyah on the 15th anniversary of her much-too-soon passing, Tweet recalls her lasting memory of the late star:

"I met her when Missy was recording a record we did with her, it was like I've known her all my life. The last time I saw her, she had a party in L.A. and it was like we had been friends forever; we danced all night. I can't really describe it, it was like, 'This is my girlfriend from a long time ago and hadn't known each other a long time at all."

The "It Won't Hurt Me" singer adds that Aaliyah was "such a sweet spirit" and "very genuine."

And Tweet's favorite Aaliyah cut? None other than "Rock the Boat." "I do all the dance moves," the Charlene star says, before adding with a laugh, "I think I'm on the boat."
