DEF JAM HAS A QUEENS GAMBIT

Def Jam will release music weekly from the new ABC series Queens, starting today with “Nasty Girl” by the show’s stars, EveNaturi NaughtonNadine Velazquez and Brandy.

The fictional quartet is four ’90s hip-hop legends now in their forties who reunite for a chance to recapture their fame. Queens debuts 10/19.

The original music in Queens is performed by the show’s stars at the direction of executive music producer Swizz Beatz. Tim Story (NSYNC, Monica, K-Ci & JoJo) directed the pilot as well as the "Nasty Girl" video.

“As artists who came up in the ’90s, ‘Nasty Girl’ is our love letter to the groundbreaking music and hip-hop culture of the era,” the women of Queens said in unison. “Filming the music video on a yacht in Miami, with the champagne flowing and pyrotechnics blasting, stirred up a sense of nostalgia and pride in how far we have come as artists.”
