Aaliyah's official YouTube channel will come from the late singer's estate on her official Instagram account next year, according to a post.
"Thank you for all of your love and support," read the caption below a picture of the announcement. "We're proud to announce that the estate is now in control of Aaliyah's YouTube account. 2021 will be Aaliyah's year! See you all in the New Year!"
The news comes months after the singer's official estate announced that her music will finally be available on streaming services as well. "To our loyal fans: We are pleased to announce that communication between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah's music catalog and its availability on streaming platforms has begun in the near future," the statement said from August. Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates will follow! "
The legal saga surrounding Aaliyah's music is well documented. Blackground Records - the label founded in part by Aaliyah's uncle Barry Hankerson - released all three of their albums and is no longer operational. Hankerson is believed to be the main character blocking her music, but it looks like the situation is on its way to resolution.
There's no telling what might be on the upcoming YouTube channel, but for now, fans can watch most of Aaliyah's music videos here.
