The R&B star was killed in a plane crash back in 2001 and her passing was mourned by millions in the days before the 9/11 terror attacks on America.

And Beyonce has clearly not forgotten Aaliyah - she took to Instagram to mark the sad anniversary by posting a throwback video of herself interviewing the Try Again singer on the red carpet at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.

During the clip, both girls coo about D'Angelo, who performed at the show, with Aaliyah stating, "He's fine, he's hot, he's sexy."

Aaliyah died at the age of 22 on 25 August, 2001.
