2001 was the twenty-second and final year of Aaliyah's life. It saw the release of her final studio album Aaliyah in July. Though this was the only thing she released that year, she filmed scenes for her film Queen of the Damned, which was released the following year in 2002. Aaliyah did not live to see its release, as she died on August 25 while returning home from the shooting of the music video for the single "Rock the Boat". Her funeral was held on August 31, where brother Rashad Haughton delivered the eulogy.
