It was just announced that Disney’s Zendaya Coleman will play late R&B star Aaliyah in the upcoming Lifetime biopic of her life, while in 2009, Biggie Smalls’ life and career was also documented in the movie, Notorious.
With this sudden re-emergence of the biopic genre, we had to re-live some of our favorite music biopics and simply bask in their epic silver (or small) screen glory—minus the $12 movie ticket.
These films allowed us to really feel as though we knew the artists personally, and gave us moments to remember, like when Jennifer Lopez stole our hearts as Selena, or Jamie Foxx had us glued to our seats during his breathtaking role as Ray Charles.
So grab some popcorn, and click through our list of the ten best music biopics below.
