Alexandra Shipp

Just weeks after it was announced Zendaya Coleman had pulled out of Lifetime’s biopic about legendary R&B singer Aaliyah, the network has announced it has re-cast the role.

The network announced, via Twitter, that Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp—who has made appearances on shows like Ray Donovan and Awkward and who is also the lead character in VH1’s upcoming film, Drumline 2: A New Beat—will portray the songstress in Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. Wendy Williams also announced via Twitter that she will serve as executive producer with production beginning later this month.

It looks like the show will go on—are you excited for the movie? Talk back to us in the comments section below!
