In the 90s, Aaliyah dominated Popular culture with the song.
When the new millennium arrived, plans were put in place to turn the superstar into a star of screen and stage with a strategy her camp hoped would have converted her music-buying audience into a movie-loving one.
Unfortunately, she died before the dream could become a reality.
Now, the director of the hit movie ‘Honey’ has shed light on a rumour which claimed the ‘Four Page Letter’ writer was to star in the release.
How any of this finds its way to Beyonce‘s door?

In an interview with Rated R&B, Billie Woodruff revealed that there is no truth to the rumour that Aaliyah was to lead the picture and revealed that Beyonce came close to portraying its leading lady.
It was supposed to be Beyoncé. She couldn’t do it because of her touring schedule for her first album Dangerously In Love.
Jessica Alba would go on to earn the role.
Following Aaliyah’s death, a number of fresh faces emerged to occupy the lane she left vacant (see Ashanti, Ciara and Tweet), as the actress Nona Gaye was employed to take on the role the singer had planned to deliver to the masses in ‘The Matrix’ movie empire.
