Cable network, Lifetime is going ahead with an Aaliyah biopic. The movie, for now, is titled 'Aaliyah: Princess of R&B.' It is based on the novel, Aaliyah: More Than A Woman. 

Now, you're probably asking yourself, "Who is going to play Aaliyah?" Well, let me tell you it is going to be....Zendaya!

Zendaya is currently on the Disney Channel Show 'Shake It Up.' She also was a contender on 'Dancing With the Stars' and her last single, 'Replay,' went platinum. So she does have some of the credentials to play the part.

The thing that has some critics crying foul is the fact that Zendaya is going to be re-recording a few songs for the movie. It will be interesting to see how those songs come out.

I can't wait to see the movie. I think it will be great.

Just for nostalgia's sake here is Aaliyah at her best:

And here is Zendaya doing her thang:

Do you think Zendaya is the right choice to play Aaliyah?
