Young multi-hyphenate Keke Palmer paid tribute to Aaliyah on Halloween with a spot-on rendition of the late songbird in her "Try Again" video.

Dust off the video for the 2000 Romeo Must Die soundtrack single, where Aaliyah not only got her stuntwoman on alongside Jet Li but rocked a shimmery bikini top, black cargo pants and a sultry smoky eye. Palmer -- who is a singer, actress, and Scream Queens star -- flaunted her Halloween ode to Baby Girl on Instagram, which racked up thousands of double taps.

Aaliyah's Top 10 Billboard Hits

Not only did she nail the look, she even recreated the choreo from Aaliyah's epic dance sequence. 

The Timbaland-produced "Try Again" was Aaliyah's only No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The singer passed away at 22 years old from a 2001 plane crash in the Bahamas after shooting the video for "Rock The Boat."
