[Trending Tuesday] Frank Ocean Sings Soulful Tribute to Aaliyah

This past Friday, January 16, marked what would’ve been Aaliyah’s 36th birthday. In memory of the late Princess of R&B, Frank Ocean dropped a stripped-down, soulful cover of the Isley Brothers’ “At Your Best (You Are Love)” on his tumblr.

The track from 1976 was famously covered by Aaliyah in 1994. Ocean refers to his cover as “You Are Luhh”on tumblr. At the end of song, there’s an unrelated snippet of music that could very well be a super short sneak peek of something from his highly anticipated album, but there’s no way to know for sure.

Regardless, the cover is absolutely gorgeous, honors Aaliyah well, and is without a doubt worth giving a listen to.
