AALIYAH GOES UP, COMES DOWN AT ITUNES

Aaliyah’s hits were posted on iTunes and Apple Music Wednesday night after years of being kept off the market. Less than 24 hours later, the out-of-print 2005 collection Ultimate was pulled off the services after peaking #4 at iTunes

The tracks posted were credited to Craze Productions, a company that has had its issues with unauthorized YouTube and iTunes postings. In 2013, Aaliyah’s albums One in a Million and Aaliyah were illegally uploaded by Craze Digital, the company’s distribution arm. The albums were pulled down and the company was sued for the unauthorized posting.

Since the album has been removed, it's clear Craze did not strike a deal with the owner of the masters, Aaliyah's uncle, Barry Hankerson. The songs did not appear on other streaming services.

Originally released by Blackground, the collection features “One in a Million,” “Try Again,” and “Are You That Somebody.” Previously, the only Aaliyah album available online was her 1994 debut Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number
