So it would make perfect sense for Missy to pen a touching tribute to the late singer, who passed away on August 25th, 2001 after a plane she was on crashed in the Bahamas. She was there to film the song "Rock the Boat" off her self-titled third and final studio album.

The "Work It" rapper uploaded a video of her actually writing the message for the R&B legend, which read as "Aaliyah, we miss you so much. But your legacy will live on forever and ever!"
