We gave it an B+

Imagine En Vogue packed into one teenage body and backed by hip-hop svengali R. Kelly, and you have Aaliyah. Her first single from Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number, ”Back & Forth,” hit the charts like a Jeep in fifth gear, and her silky vocals are more agile than those of self-proclaimed queen of hip-hop soul Mary J. Blige. Aaliyah exudes street attitude a bit too self-consciously-nonetheless, a promising start. B+
