Rock the Boat (4:38)

Cover of Aaliyah

From Aaliyah and 29 other releases

“Rock the Boat” is an R&B song written by Static Major, Eric Seats and Rapture Stewart for Aaliyah’s third studio album, Aaliyah (2001). It was co-produced by Keybeats and released as the album’s second single in North America in August 2001 (see 2001 in music) and as the 3rd international single during the first quarter of 2002 (see 2002 in music). The song was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in the 44th Annual Grammy Awards.

In an issue of Vibe magazine, it was revealed the song was written at least two years before its actual release, but never recorded because her label didn’t think she was ready for an explicit song such as Rock the Boat.

    Watching the fated video she recorded before passing away so soon. R.I.P. Aaliyah.

    WAY ahead of it's time. like, music today isn't even produced as perfectly as this. [4] Literally, in this song, you know that EVERY single detail was thought out, planned, and perfectly put together. It is honestly a HUGELY textured effort on Aaliyah's part - I mean, damn, we're still on here stanning about this song 12 or so years after it first came out!

    omg i was watching the music video for this song at 2:00am and i felt soo entranced. like aaliyah was seducing me. i don't know if it was because it was 2:00am and i was soo tired or her sexiness was just that powerful, but i now consider this song a very magical one.
