Aaliyah was the subject of a controversial biopic that aired on US TV network Lifetime last November. The production of the film – which was panned upon release – was met with resistance from the artist’s family, who hired a lawyer in an attempt to block the project.

Speaking in June 2014, Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager Barry Hankerson claimed that the family had not been contacted about the film and were preventing attempts to use any of his niece’s music.

Aaliyah Dana Haughton died in a plane crash in August 2001, aged 22. Her short career included a string of hits including ‘Back & Forth’, ‘One In A Million’ and ‘Try Again’, as well as leading roles in the films Romeo Must Die and Queen Of The Damned.
