Here's Your First Look At Lifetime's Aaliyah Biopic

Lifetime

Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic has undergone quite a bit of changes and controversy over the past few months. First, Zendaya dropped out of the lead role, which she later revealed was because of the movie's production value and issues with the music rights. Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp replaced Zendaya and then the late R&B singer's family voiced their reservations and issues with the film. Yet production has continued moving forward and now we have our first look at it.

Lifetime posted a short teaser of the movie, titled "Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B," to their Facebook page on Friday. In it, Shipp dances in baggy camo pants, Timberlands and a sports bra -- a signature Aaliyah look. Check out the promo below:

"Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B" premieres on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
