Happy Birthday to Aaliyah. The talented and beautiful singer and actor would have been 36 years old yesterday (1/16). To celebrate her lasting legacy, Frank Ocean has released an amazing cover of “At Your Best.” The song, which was originally written and performed by the Isley Brothers in 1976 as a tribute to their mother, found an audience with an entire new generation as a single from Aaliyah’s Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number album in 1994. Her tender rendition would make it one of the signature songs of her career.

Ocean flexes his falsetto over nothing but a soft piano. The song remains timeless as ever. Check it out.
