Aaliyah – One in a Million (Released: December 10, 1996)

“One in a Million” is a song by American R&B singer Aaliyah from her second studio album, One in a Million (1996). The song was the third main single from One in a Million following “Got to Give It Up”, but in North America the song was the second single, because “Got to Give It Up” was not released until 1998 in the U.S.

“One in a Million” was name-dropped in Foxy Brown’s 1997 single “Big Bad Mamma”. Thirteen years later, rapper Diamond mentioned the song in her verse on Dondria’s single “Shawty Wus Up”.”One in a Million” is a R&B song written by Missy Elliott and Timbaland, who also produced the song.
One in a Million” was recorded at Pyramid Studios in Ithaca, New York.The song became a U.S. hit on the Billboard R&B charts, reaching number one on the R&B Airplay Chart for six weeks; it also became a U.S. airplay hit based on its R&B and Rhythmic airplay, propelling the song to peak within the top ten of the Hot 100 Airplay Chart at seven. It was also a top twenty hit in the UK, reaching number fifteen as part of a double A-side with the re-release of “If Your Girl Only Knew”.The music video for “One in a Million” was directed by Paul Hunter in the autumn of 1996. An extended version of the video was used for the remix which features Ginuwine, Timbaland, and Missy Elliott in 1997. The video starts with Aaliyah lying on top of a black Ford Mustang with Missy Elliott and Timbaland sitting inside of it. Soon, several reporters and fans rush to the car. Then the scene switches to a dark room where Aaliyah is sitting as Ginuwine approaches her. In another scene she is watching him in an off white-colored room via security camera. The scene shifts to a completely white room where Aaliyah is dancing with another male and then to the scene where Ginuwine is looking at the security camera. In the latter scene, Aaliyah enters the room and reveals a tattoo of her name on Ginuwine’s arm. Once again, the scene goes back to the dark room, but this time Aaliyah is standing up and performing in a white bodysuit. The video ends with Aaliyah riding in a motorcycle with eighteen year old DEALZ, son of Jackie Jackson.In 2010, singer/songwriter The-Dream recorded a cover of the song.
