Speaking of “Try Again,” the 2000 hit was one of several songs performed by Aaliyah for the film Romeo Must Die, which also stars the singer as the daughter of a mob boss whom a former cop (Jet Li) falls in love with while investigating his brother’s murder. In a behind-the-scenes look of the modern retelling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with a kung fu twist, martial artist Li praised his romantic lead’s acting ability as well as her fighting skills. In fact, Aaliyah requested not to use a stunt double, adding to CNN that she “wanted the audience to be like, ‘Wow, she actually got up there and is kicking some butt.’”
