Queen Naija (Capitol)
10/9/18

WHAT IT IS: The 22-year-old from Detroit has transformed into one of 2018’s biggest breakout R&B stars. Queen began singing in church at age three and writing her own songs in third grade. “At first I mostly wrote love songs about boys,” she recalls. “I was really boy-crazy – but after a while, I started writing from my own life. I wrote about not having money and struggling through that, and about growing up without a dad.” Her focus shifted when she and her former husband found fame online with their popular YouTube channel. And when their marriage fell apart last year, Queen returned to her lifelong passion and self-released “Medicine”—a song detailing her side of the story. The New York Times proclaimed “Medicine” as “one of this year’s defining R&B songs.” She’s been named an Artist on the Rise and Artist on the Verge by YouTube and iHeartRadio, respectively. She also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart.
