Solange to Portray Aaliyah in Biopic?

Aaliyah’s legacy has remained a topic of conversation since her untimely death in 2001. While artists like Drake, Chris Brown and Timbaland continue to use her voice for new music, movie executives have struggled to bring her short life to the silver screen. This week, word spread like wildfire that Solange would possibly assume the title role in a biopic.

“There is a crazy rumor that the chick Solange has landed the role to play Aaliyah an upcoming biopic. Now, the rumor is Solange went out for the role earlier in the month and ended up getting it this week. She reportedly will be working with the same people that did the movie ‘Think Like A Man,'” says

While Solange’s film resume is scarce, she is the first female to spark excitement over the yet-to-be announced film.
