Aaliyah uses this low-key funk tune to chide a man for hitting on her when he already has a girlfriend. The lyrics barely rise above the mundane, but the message is an enduring one and the sparse, robotic rhythm is entrancing. If Your Girl Only Knew ain’t exactly feminist hip-hop, but it’s a welcome change from the catty terrain most R&B divas cover. B
