Movie Info

Self-proclaimed "street but sweet" Aaliyah led the royal R&B scene before Beyoncé or Rihanna attained their status. With her sexy tomboy style and infectious confidence, she ruled the charts as one of the recording industry's most successful artists in history. But there was much more to Aaliyah than choreographed dance moves, movie roles, and a celebrated voice. Based on a true story, AALIYAH: THE PRINCESS OF R&B embodies the soul, determination, and challenges of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, from the beginning of her career to her tragic death at age 22.

Critic Reviews for Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • Despite a handful of great performances, this small-screen drama is a forgettable, overly publicized splash in the pan unworthy of the woman it earnestly but clumsily attempts to honor. What a shame.

  • The movie bears little resemblance to Aaliyah's life and career, and tells a dissatisfying story for fans as well as general audiences.
