Cover of Aaliyah

From Aaliyah and 74 other releases

“Try Again” is a Grammy-nominated single by American singer Aaliyah. The song went #1 on the Billboard charts, received favorable reviews, and it is one of her most successful songs to date.

The song was written by Static Major and Tim Mosley (Timbaland) and produced by Tim Mosley. It was the second single released from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack and written for the motion picture of the same name. The single was released to radio while “I Don’t Wanna” was still at radio, “Try Again” had peaked by the time “I Don’t Wanna” was phased out. “Try Again” was one of her most successful songs in both the American charts and the international charts. It was the first song ever to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 based solely on the strength of its radio airplay.

The song was listed 10th on The Village Voice’s 2000 Pazz & Jop critics’ poll. In November 2002, NME magazine ranked “Try Again” # 93 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singles of All Time.

In 2003 German metal band Knorkator covered “Try Again” for their album Ich hasse Musik, turning the piece into a crushing orchestral industrial metal piece.

In an issue of Vibe magazine, it was revealed that Try Again along with Are You That Somebody were not Aaliyah’s favorite songs, but recorded because of Static Major.
