About “Age Ain't Nothing But a Number”

Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number is the debut studio album by Aaliyah, released under Jive and Blackground Records in May 1994.

After being signed by her uncle Barry Hankerson, Aaliyah was introduced to recording artist and producer R. Kelly. He became her mentor, as well as the lead songwriter and producer of the album.

The duo recorded the album at the Chicago Recording Company in Chicago, Illinois. The album featured two hit singles, including the top ten-charting “Back & Forth” and “At Your Best (You Are Love)”; both singles were certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). One additional single followed in the US: “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number”. Two more singles were released internationally after “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number”: “Down with the Clique” and “The Thing I Like”.

Aaliyah was credited for redefining R&B by blending her voice with Kelly’s new jack swing.
