Missy Elliott and Timbaland remember Aaliyah's birthday


Missy Elliott and Timbaland have paid tribute to their late friend Aaliyah on what would have been the R&B star's 34th birthday.

Bing: Drake and Aaliyah collaboration

The singer died in a plane crash in the Bahamas on August 25, 2001, when she was just 22 years old. Fans took to Twitter on Wednesday to mark her birthday, and made "Aaliyah" one of the top trending topics on the social networking site.

Elliott, who regularly collaborated with Aaliyah throughout the singer's short career, posted a special message for her pal on Twitter, writing, "We miss u Aaliyah! It's not a day go pass we don't think of u and how your music still have a impact on the world! RIP baby girl." Timbaland shared a link to the music video for Aaliyah's track "4 Page Letter," and re-tweeted the tribute, "Happy Birthday to the beautiful Aaliyah! Our angel ... Never forgotten!"
