“Miss You” is an R&B ballad written by Johnta Austin, Teddy Bishop, and American singer Ginuwine. It was a previously unreleased song on Aaliyah’s first posthumously released compilation album, I Care 4 U (2002) and released as its lead single during the first quarter of 2003 (see 2003 in music). The song reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and entered the top 10 in Germany and Taiwan. “Miss You” also reached the top 20 in Canada, Denmark and Switzerland.

Rapper Jay-Z made a tribute to Aaliyah using the “Miss You” instrumental and chorus.

The music video for the song was directed by Darren Grant and featured tributes by Aaliyah’s friends and collaborators, including DMX, Missy Elliott, Toni Braxton, Tweet, Static Major and various others. The video shot in two locations Long Island City, New York, and Los Angeles, California. Tweet, Lil’ Kim, Jaheim, and Lil’ Jon were among those who came to the Long Island shoot. Jamie Foxx, DMX, Quincy Jones, and Ananda Lewis were some of the celebrities who appeared at the L.A. shoot.[1]

Between cuts clips from Aaliyah’s early videos and her cameos in other artists’ videos were used. Aaliyah merchandise (posters, jackets, and even a motorcycle) also appeared in the video. “Miss You” landed at #23 on BET: Notarized Top 100 videos of 2003.
