"This is the leading single from Aaliyah?s third self titled album. Following the success of the massive smash ?Try Again? from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack, Aaliyah is changing in direction with this new release. It?s nothing like her previous work and it?s nothing like anything that?s out in the market at the moment. It?s surprisingly different and it?s messy beats are almost as annoying as it is interesting because it?s so catchy. This single release is backed up by a non album track is which is worth checking out and a track that was also featured on the Romeo Must Die soundtrack. And as a bonus, an enhanced component containing the video is also thrown in making this a nice little package.
1. We Need A Resolution (Album Version) 4.01

"My favorite thing about this import is the video, and it has the full screen option. I give it four stars because I was disappointed that they didn't include an instrumental version, but all in all, it's a good enhanced CD."

"Aaliyah amped up her well known mystique with a dash of dark sensuality with We Need A Resolution, the first single off her self-titled album. With a hypnotic Middle Eastern backdrop courtesy of producer Timbaland, Babygirl asks her man to talk out their issues so their relationship can go smoother. "Its official/You got issues/I got issues/But I know I miss you!" she cries and then wonders "Am I supposed to change?/Are you supposed to change?/Who should be heard?/Will we remain?" Timbaland plays the comical role of the dismissive boyfriend who's "tired of arguin'" and shuts her down instead of working things out.
The video introduced a more adult, slightly gothic Aaliyah with blood red lips, dark eyes, and darker clothes levitating over a glass bed with headphones on, performing a dance routine with all male dancers, and writhing around in a muddy pit with a snake around her neck (most likely where Britney Spears got the inspiration for her 2001 MTV Video Music Awards performance from). There was nothing else like this on the radio in the spring of 2001 and there's nothing like it today. Classic Aaliyah. Always several steps ahead."
