Last week, Lifetime dropped a short clip showing 23-year-old Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp in action as the late R&B star Aaliyah Haughton. Now, the network has given the world a full trailer for the controversial biopic set to premiere on November 15 at 8/7c.
In the clip, Iggy Azalea’s song “Goddess” plays as actress Rachael Crawford, who plays Aaliyah’s mother, tells her daughter, "It takes more than some hot producer to create a superstar." In another moment, a record producer (R. Kelly?) says, "You realize what you got in this girl? There's gonna be nobody like her.” Throughout the trailer, we can see how Shipp moves like Aaliyah, in dance and performance mannerisms.
Peep it! Does this peak your interest for the film?
