Since first breaking through with her multi-platinum smash hit “Medicine,” Queen Naija has emerged as an unstoppable force in the R&B world. The Atlanta-based singer/songwriter further proved her massive appeal and tremendous talent on her chart-topping self-titled debut EP, a 2018 effort that soon earned her nominations for Top R&B Artist at the Billboard Music Awards and Best New Artist at the BET Awards. With the recent arrival of her full-length debut album “missunderstood,” she has cemented her status as one of R&B’s most compelling young stars, delivering a daringly honest body of work that’s undeniably timeless yet irresistibly fresh.
Debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and in the top 10 on the Billboard 200, “misunderstood” expands on the emotionally charged songwriting Queen brought to her debut EP (a five-song project featuring three platinum-certified singles). Queen collaborated with heavyweights like London Jae, taking her time to dream up a smooth yet unpredictable sound that perfectly complements her full-hearted vocals and soul-baring lyrics.
