Queen has already amassed over 1.7 billion combined global career streams. Lil Durk, Russ, Mulatto, Toosii, Jacquees, Lucky Daye, Kiana Ledé and Pretty Vee feature on missunderstood. The album includes “Butterflies Pt. 2,” which continues its climb at Urban AC radio, entering the top three. The song has more than 63 million combined global streams while “Pack Lite” has amassed over 42 million cumulative streams.
Teyana Taylor, aka Spike Tey, directed the official videos for “Pack Lite” and “Lie to Me” ft. Lil Durk.
After Zane Lowe premiered “Bitter” ft. Mulatto, it became the #1 trending song on Apple Music. Queen appeared on the cover of “New Music Daily” and “Bitter” took the #1 spot on the playlist. She revealed the album’s track listing in the form of a nostalgic 90’s sitcom introduction, featuring “Bitter” as the show’s theme song.
With the arrival of her 2018 self-titled debut EP, Queen emerged as an unstoppable new force in the R&B world. Queen Naija featured three Platinum-certified singles: “Butterflies,” “Karma” and her breakthrough hit “Medicine”—an independently released smash that made its staggering debut at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100, a nearly-unheard-of achievement for an unsigned artist. Along with debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, she earned major recognition in the 2019 awards season with nominations for Top R&B Artist at the Billboard Music Awards, Best New Artist at the BET Awards and three nods at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
