Aaliyah Radio

After months of rumor control and backlash, the first look of the Aaliyah biopic being produced by Lifetime Network is here.

Remember, Zendaya Coleman pulled out of the project after Aaliyah’s family objected to the production, however new actress Alexandra Shipp signed on and so far there hasn’t been any additional drama. We got our hands on a teaser shot of the film to take a look at how ‘Baby Girl’ is being remembered and immortalized on the small screen.

Lifetime tweeted the first pic of Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp as the late songstress in the network’s upcoming movie and also revealed when fans can tune in.

“She was the princess of R&B and now her story is being told. #AaliyahMovie premieres Saturday, November 15,” the post read.

So there we have it…a premiere date.

Take a look at the picture, and tell us: Does Alexandra Shipp looks like Aaliyah? Are you curious to watch the TV movie?
