Whenever I drop an Aaliyah record it still feels brand new to me,” DJ LimeLightz tells soodetroit.com. “More importantly though …I feel like it’s important for Detroit to embrace one of our own and celebrate her Birthday with a mix of a few of her classics.
All in a positive light I just want the artist and everyone in Detroit to realize how much respect the music industry has given our city over the years and to not take any of it for granted,” he continues. “Motown lived here and still does! We’ve always had some of the best talent in the world …we just have to act like it!”
