After much drama & bickering, Lifetime has let go another teaser for the Aaliyah biopic ‘Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B’.
Set to the sounds of rapper Iggy Azalea (ummm what LOL???), the 30-second teaser shows clips from the upcoming made-for-TV movie. Executive produced by Wendy Williams, the movie – which stars Alexandria Shipp in the role of Aaliyah – has seen a heightened amount of controversy throughout its stages of creation.
Although Aaliyah’s family & friends have expressed their displeasure for the filming of the movie, Lifetime went on & moved forward by replacing Zendaya Coleman, who dropped out after backlash of her filling the role, with Shipp.
Fans of the late beauty can also expect not to hear none of Aaliyah’s music in the film just like they won’t hear none of it in the teaser as Lifetime was not cleared to license her catalog of music for the production.
