Well, here it is … your very first look at the Lifetime biopic, “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B”.

The two-Hour film based on the bestselling book “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman”, stars Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) and chronicles Aaliyah’s rise to fame and tragic death. The biopic will also cover her working relationship with Timbaland and Missy Elliot, while also delving into her romantic relationships with R. Kelly and Damon Dash.

The Lifetime Original Film also stars Rachael Crawford and Sterling Jarvis as Aaliyah’s parents, Diane and Mike Haughton, Anthony Grant as Damon Dash, Izaak Smith as Timbaland, Elise Neal as Gladys Knight and Chattrisse Dolabaille as Missy Elliot.

Although buzz around the biopic is at an all time high, it has had a few rough patches. The family has voiced their disapproval of the project and the film’s initial star, Zendaya, backed out because of those concerns.

Take a look at the 15 second teaser below. Are you going to watch Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B when it premieres Saturday, November 15, at 8pm ET/PT?

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
