After much talk, replacements, and consistent views on why this shouldn’t be released, a teaser of the upcoming biopic surfaces. Here’s a quick teaser/sneak peek of the upcoming biopic of the Princess Aaliyah titled “The Princess Of R&B.” When news surfaced on the actress who would portray Aaliyah, the first choice was Zendaya, but was shortly dropped for (Alexandra Shipp) who is known on Nickelodeon’s House of Anubis. Honestly I want to see how this turns out, but Lifetime hasn’t been the best network for biopics.
The upcoming biopic will air on Saturday, November 15th.
Folarin is gearing up for his forthcoming The Album About Nothing. Today, he releases the final version of his first single “The Body”, which features crooner Jeremih on the hook. The song interpolates R. Kelly’s single “You Remind Me Of Something”, and the radio will eat this record up. He also released the trailer for the album as well which you can view after the break.
