Finally! Aaliyah Gets Honored With Her Own Collection and Fans Are Obsessed

Aaliyah is getting her own collection.

It’s been over 15 years since Aaliyah passed away in a plane crash in the Bahamas. Thanks to M.A.C., the singer who perished at a tragically young age will finally have her own signature makeup collection.

Similar to the brand’s wildly successful Selena collection, the new makeup line will honor a late legend who died young, subbing an R&B icon for the queen of Tejano. Starting in Summer 2018, fans of the cosmetics brand and the R&B legend alike can snag the products.

“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” the brand wrote in an announcement on Instagram. “Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018.”

In addition to the new collection, an official Instagram account for Aaliyah has been launched: @Aaliyah_Haughton. The owners of the account — presumably Aaliyah’s estate — shared a photo of the singer before sharing M.A.C.’s announcement message.

Fans on social media seem to be excited by the idea of Aaliyah finally getting her own signature line. “BABY GIRL IT’S FINALLY YOUR TIME FOR A COLLECTION!” wrote one geeked fan.
