Teyana Taylor apparently auditioned for the role of Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic. This is footage from her tape.
Disney Star Zendaya Coleman was recently announced to play Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic, and the reception has been very mixed so far.
Turns out, another notable entertainer was in the running for the role, as footage of Teyana Taylor's audition tape has hit the net.
The GOOD Music singer danced, sang, and showed off her acting skills in the tape, which was posted to Instagram by a friend today. This particular clip shows Taylor pulling off some ambitious choreography to the late singer's hit, "Try Again".
Would Teyana have been a better choice to portray Aaliyah than Zendaya? Let us know in the comments.
