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.
