Welcome to episode #7 of the 90s State of Mind podcast - a collaborative project between 4ever in Electric Dreams and Blue-in-Green:RADIO. This podcast sees Imran Mirza celebrate incredible albums from the 1990s alongside a variety of Blue-in-Green:RADIO presenters. This episode sees Imran and Rhonda from San Jose, California - and host of Ride The Vibe - delve into the sophomore album release of revered vocalist, Aaliyah.
Released in 1996, 'One in a Million' proved to be a huge hit for the vocalist along with the project's chief collaborators, Timbaland and Missy Elliott - marking the beginning of their musical union which would garner several notable collaborations over the years. 'One in a Million' has sold over three million copies in the US and eight million copies worldwide.
The album produced six singles, 'If Your Girl Only Knew', 'One in a Million', 'Got to Give It Up', '4 Page Letter', 'Hot Like Fire', and 'The One I Gave My Heart To', with the last becoming the album's highest-charting single, peaking at nine on the US Billboard Hot 100.
