While it doesn’t come as a complete shock, we’ve learned G.O.O.D’s music’s first lady, Teyana Taylor, also auditioned for the coveted role of ‘Aaliyah’, the Lifetime biopic.
In a three part series, footage of Taylor singing, acting and dancing were released on Instagram by her friend Tyrone Bee.
Tyrone captions the 15 second clips with his opinion on casting Zendaya in the lead role and even believes that had Taylor hadn’t backed out of the audition, she would’ve landed the role.
unfortunately @teyanataylor heard that Aaliyah’s family isn’t involved & she no longer wanted to be apart of the film.
If you remember, Aaliyah’s family is vowing to stop Lifetime from releasing the project and using any of her music, so we understand why Teyana would want to respect their wishes.
Tyrone also dishes on Teyana’s ability to sing, dance and act.
I know teyana is gona be mad at me for posting her audition clips but i honestly feel no one deserves this role more then her . She embraces Aaliyah dancing , acting and singing.
Take a look at the videos below and you tell us, could you see Teyana as Aaliyah? Why or why not?
