A wax figure of the late singer Aaliyah made its debut in Las Vegas.

Fans have been petitioning that the Madame Tussauds Museum create a wax figure statue for late singer Aaliyah for many years, and yesterday those calls became a reality.

According to Vibe Magazine, Aaliyah’s statue was revealed 18 years after her tragic death, after the museum finally opened discussions over a year and a half ago.

The figure replicates Aaliyah in her famous “Try Again” video from the year 2000. The singer is wearing a metallic bra and choker set with her signature leather pants.

According to reports, Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, played a big role in making sure the wax figure really captured the “One in a Million” singer’s essence and was given “unprecedented access” to the creative process.

The replica modeled the singer who died in a 2001 plane crash right down to her exact tattoos, details that Haughton made sure not to skip over.

Fans were indeed appreciative on social media of the efforts the museum took to immortalize the fallen superstar.
