A new book about Aaliyah's life will be released next year. According to Madamenoire, the book will be entitled Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah and it will be released August 17th,  2021 — a week before the 20th anniversary of her death.

According to a press release, the book will take a “deep dive into her tumultuously abusive entanglement with R. Kelly and an intense investigation on the crash that ended her life.”

It will also “focus on the span of Aaliyah’s life and career — from her earliest beginnings singing in Detroit all the way through to her game-changing musical era with Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and the late Static Major.”

Iandoli said about the book, “I wrote this book as an Aaliyah fan. This is for all of us who for the last twenty years can spot her influence everywhere, while wishing she was still here. I left no stone unturned, and I hope I’ve added to her legacy properly.”
