Aaliyah‘s music continues to live on.

Legacy Recordings announced plans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her debut offering, “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number,” with a special limited-edition release next month the day after Thanksgiving.

A two-LP vinyl edition of the album will be released for the Record Store Day Black Friday event on Nov. 28. The set will feature the rare bonus track “The Thing I Like.”

The disc, which was written and produced by R. Kelly, spawned the top 10 hits “Back & Forth” and “At Your Best (You Are Love).”

Aaliyah died Aug. 25, 2001, in a plane crash at the age of 22. She had just completed shooting her “Rock the Boat” music video in The Bahamas. Named Billboard’s 10th most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years, she released three solo albums, including “One in a Million” in 1996 and “Aaliyah” in 2001.

In addition, Legacy Recordings is preparing limited edition Record Store Day releases of Outkast‘s “Player’s Ball” and Wu-Tang Clan‘s “C.R.E.A.M.”

To mark each Record Store Day, a wide variety of limited-edition vinyl singles, EPs and LPs are sold exclusively at participating independent record shops across the U.S.
