With the recent arrival of her debut album missunderstood, Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Queen Naija has cemented her status as one of R&B?s most compelling young stars. Hailed as ?the first soul star of the social media generation? by The New York Times, the 25-year-old Detroit native has amassed over 3 billion combined global streams to date, each song showcasing the powerful vocal skills she first developed by singing in church. Although she initially found fame through a YouTube channel launched with her former husband, Queen struck out on her own with her breakthrough single ?Medicine?: a Jan. 2018 release that debuted at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100, and quickly landed her a deal with Capitol Records. By summer 2018, she?d delivered a critically acclaimed self-titled EP, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard?s Emerging Artists chart and earned major recognition in the 2019 awards season.
