August 25, 2014 will mark the 13th anniversary of the singer’s death and others close to her in a Bahamas plane crash while shooting the Rock The Boat video. In one of the tweets Hankerson gave a release date of January 4, 2014:

VH1 recently rebooted TLC’s career with a fictional account of their rise to fame CrazySexyCool that pulled in 4.5 million viewers on its first night. Could the station be vying to finally tell the story of the story of the 22-year-old whose life was cut short by her death in a plane crash?

While fans have shown an interest in an official film, her family and close collaborators have opposing views on releasing music and a film. Producers Missy Elliott and Timbaland have publicly acknowledged that they weren’t invited to participate on any new music from the star.

Do you think this is a good idea?

    I think Timberland and Missy should be involved in picking the music for the biopic
