I guess the wait it over.

The rumored Aaliyah biopic is no longer a rumor. Vh1 picked up the rights for the film that’s set to debut August 25th.

All we need to know now is who was going to play the R&B superstar. We possibly have a name and a face now.

Host of 106 & Park, Keshia Chanté  has been considered a lock for the role since 2008, way before she became host of the BET show. While it’s still not official, she added fuel to the fire when she posted this picture.

According to Vibe, the singer posted a pic resembling the late singer with the caption, “The Audition.” Along with the picture, this clip of Chante’ doing her best Aaliyah impersonation popped up.

Other rumored contenders include Lolita Price, Keke Palmer and Solange Knowles.

We’ll know by Aug 25th when the film airs on Vh1 who won the role.
