Preserving unprecedented momentum from a breakthrough 2019, platinum-certified R&B singer and songwriter Queen Naija officially shares her new single “Butterflies Pt. 2” today. Get it HERE via Capitol Music Group. It stands out as the sequel to her recently platinum-certified 2018 single “Butterflies.”
Earlier this week, she teased out the track on YouTube with a “Memory Video.” View it HERE. The clip impressively neared 1 million views in less three days. It intercuts intimate real-life moments between Queen Naija and her boyfriend Clarence White. Cycling through actual Facetime chats and iPhone video, it seamlessly reflects the vulnerability of the track itself. Over acoustic guitar-laced minimal production by Rice N’ Peas [Kiana Ledé, Bazzi], emotion shines through the verses as she confesses, “I still get butterflies.”
“Butterflies Pt. 2” sets the stage for an even bigger 2020 as she readies her anxiously awaited full-length debut album for release very soon.
The 24-year-old Detroit songstress, who began singing in church at age three, emerged as one of 2018’s biggest breakout R&B stars. Queen and her former husband had found fame online with their popular YouTube channel. When their marriage fell apart, she self-released “Medicine,” a song detailing her side of the story. Within three weeks, “Medicine” debuted at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 – a remarkable accomplishment for an unsigned artist. The New York Times singled out “Medicine” as “one of this year’s defining R&B songs,” and it eventually went platinum.
Her self-titled debut EP, Queen Naija, is out now and available HERE for download and streaming via Capitol Records. Between “Medicine,” platinum follow-up single “Karma” and “Bad Boy,” which was produced by NO I.D. (JAY-Z, Kanye West), the collection has clocked over 800 million combined global streams to date.
In this feature, The FADER proclaimed Queen a “master of the break-up anthem.” YouTube named her as their “Artist on the Rise,” iHeartRadio hailed her as an “Artist On the Verge” and she debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart.
