Lifetime has dropped its first teaser for the Aaliyah biopic starring Alexandra Shipp, premiering Nov. 15.
Aaliyah: Princess of R&B had its fair share of ups-and-downs during the filming process after the songstress’ family refused to cooperate in the creative process of the film. Zendaya, who was originally cast as the lead Aaliyah, soon dropped out of the movie after the family expressed its concerns.
After filming was halted for a few months, producers landed on actress Alexandra Shipp and the movie quickly came together.
To promote the November movie, they released a 15-second tease showing Aaliyah with her iconic fashion.
How did Shipp do in her portrayal of the singer?
Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B premieres Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
