different cut of the "more than a woman" video
"More Than a Woman" is a contemporary R&B/dance-pop song, written by Static Major and Timbaland for Aaliyah's self-titled third studio album, Aaliyah (2001). The music consists of a looped sample of "Alouli Ansa" a title of an Arabic song as recorded by the famous Syrian Arab singer Mayada El-Henawy."More Than a Woman" was released as the album's third North American single in fall 2001 and the album's second single elsewhere during the first quarter of 2002. The song was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in the 45th Annual Grammy Awards.
On January 13, 2002, the song became Aaliyah's only number one hit in the United Kingdom, selling 32,081 copies for that week. It became the first time in UK chart history a posthumous release has taken over from another posthumous release when the song was replaced by George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord", and the first time that a woman has had a posthumous number one single.
