Following a previous 15-second teaser, Lifetime has released a new full length trailer for its upcoming biopic, “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.”

The Wendy Williams production has moved forward against the family’s wishes, but Williams reiterated this morning on “The View” that the film is “done tastefully” and she believes the late singer’s relatives will be proud.

Lifetime was unable to license an actual Aaliyah song for the trailer, because her family has blocked it. So producers for some reason turned to Iggy Azalea. Her song “Goddess” is featured in the promo over footage of Alexandra Shipp as Aaliyah. (The rapper did sample Aaliyah’s “One in a Million” for her 2013 track “Backseat Trill S**t.”)

Scenes involving R. Kelly and Aaliyah’s mom are also in the trailer.

    What I don’t understand is how they know What Diane Haughton said to her daughter when she is not cooperating with project and Aaliyah is not here?
