Story


Before Beyonce and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed "street but sweet" Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer's inspirational journey, from her debut on Star Search at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard's tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry's most successful artists in history.

by Jai Tiggett [Shadow and Act]
“..Alexandra Shipp is perfectly fine in the title role, but the slim material doesn't provide much more depth than the actress's teeth-cutting days at Nickelodeon..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
“..Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B fails to capture the magic of why her legacy is still burning bright..”
by Allison Keene [Hollywood Reporter]
