Aaliyah – “Rock The Boat” (video review)

The tragic circumstances surrounding the making of this video could have made it impossible to enjoy. Instead, the sun-kissed island-based clip stands as a testament to what made the late star so alluring: her easy sensual dancing, accessible yet enigmatic demeanor and her breathy air-kiss voice, which is a perfect fit for the song’s lyrics celebrating a woozy intoxicating love. It’s both a sad irony and a statement about her rapidly developing skills as a performer that Aaliyah’s last video may well be her best.
