Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B Trailer

After some public displeasure with the original casting for the lead role (Zendaya Coleman), Lifetime's Original Movie, "Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B," now starring Alexandra Shipp is set to premiere Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT.


The two-hour movie event is executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, and based on the bestseller "Aaliyah: More Than a Woman" by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher John Farley (Game World). Shipp is currently filming Universal Pictures' "Straight Outta Compton," the story of NWA's rise in the 80's.

The film follows the beautiful and talented performer's inspirational journey, from her debut on "Star Search" at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard's tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry's most successful artists in history.


Shipp has some big shoes to fill in this role. Here's some Aaliyah to marinade on.
