'Besterday' Podcast: Celebrating Aaliyah's Legacy, 'Queen of the Damned' 15th Anniversary

What's up home skillets! Besterday is back with a dope new episode! Bianca Gracie's weekly pop culture nostalgia podcast will remind you of all the throwback one-hit-wonder jams you listened to on your Walkman and the classic Nickelodeon shows you craved.

This week, we are joined by Fuse's own senior digital web producer, Mark Sundstrom! The two '90s R&B lovers reminisce on Aaliyah's undeniable impact and her Queen of the Damned movie, which turns 15 this week. And as always, we also break down the latest news on upcoming movie and TV remakes (you know those are never slowing down!) and music updates.

In this episode, we chat about:

—Our favorite Aaliyah songs, which includes some shoutouts for Besterday listeners on Twitter
—Her two big movie roles in Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned
The impact of the singer's short-lived career
The thirst of Jennifer Lopez's first husband who shall not be named
—Why T-Pain's "Buy U A Drank" was such a high school anthem

And, of course, we reveal our favorite throwback songs of the week!
