We've got an exclusive first look at Lifetime's upcoming TV movie, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B!
In the new trailer, 23-year-old Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp portrays the late singer Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash back in August 2001 at the young age of 22.
"It takes more than some hot producer to create a superstar," Aaliyah's mother says to her at the beginning of the trailer. "It takes the right artist."
"You realize what you got in this girl?" one record producer says as Shipp shows off her Aaliyah-inspired dance moves. "There's gonna be nobody like her," another says.
Shipp then goes into a fierce dance sequence surrounded by a team of backup dancers. She then takes the stage to belt out one of Aaliyah's hits before greeting swarms of fans to sign autographs. The whole video montage is set to Iggy Azalea's "Goddess."
