An Aaliyah biopic is underway and word on the street is that Actress/Singer Zendaya Coleman has snagged the role. I think she’d make a good fit. The a biopic is set to debut on VH1 later this year.
Zendaya made her most famous debut with Disney Channel, and selected over many talented acts. Known ladies such as Bria Murphy and Keisha Chante were allegedly in the running to snag the role, especially after Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson dropped the hint of an up and coming biopic. 106& Park host Keisha Chante was allegedly deep in the race for the role, after videos surfaced of her auditioning singing “One in a Million” as well as a distinctive Aaliyah inspired photoshoot.
