"What I shared with u [is] ever sacred, everlasting [and] it's pure and it will endure," Jackson wrote. "I love u Aaliyah. #RIP"

 

Though the talented pair never got the chance to work together, Aaliyah was vocal about her admiration for the older singer. "I try to mention her in every interview because I want to meet her and maybe at some point in my career collaborate with her," she told Rosie O'Donnell in 1997.
