Queen Naija – who took the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart with her debut album, missunderstood – will kick off a fall headline run on October 17 at Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, GA. The Butterfly Tour will include shows at Brooklyn Steel in New York City (October 24) and St. Andrews Hall in Queen’s hometown of Detroit (October 28). See below for the full itinerary for the tour, which will conclude on November 22 at The Showbox in Seattle.
Acclaimed Chicago-based R&B singer-songwriter TINK will be the special guest on most dates. The “Treat Me Like Somebody” singer came to prominence with her Winter’s Diary series of releases and her 2014 collaboration with Da Internz, “Don’t Tell Nobody” ft. Jeremih. Her latest album, Heat Of The Moment, dropped this summer and includes the single “Rebel” ft. Jeremih.
Tickets will go on sale to the public this Friday, October 17, at 10:00 AM local time at http://www.iamqueennaija.com/
Queen, who will be supporting Burna Boy at the Hollywood Bowl on October 8, has amassed over 2.5 billion combined global career streams to date. Earlier this year, Capitol Records released missunderstood…still, the deluxe edition of Queen’s debut album, which features five previously unreleased songs – including “Set Him Up” feat. Ari Lennox. The New York Times’ Jon Pareles said, “Over a slow-motion strut of a bass line and a glass of chardonnay in the lyrics, Queen Naija and Ari Lennox sweetly intertwine their voices, enjoying each other’s explicit details about their latest hookups.”
In addition to taking the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart, missunderstood earned a place in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The single “Butterflies Pt. 2” hit No. 1 on the Mediabase and BDS Urban AC charts shortly after, giving the 25-year-old her third chart-topper at the format, following the 2x Platinum “Medicine” and the Platinum-certified “Karma.” Follow-up single “Pack Lite” was certified Gold by the RIAA.
Flaunt said, “Equipped with a smooth and sultry voice and infectious energy, each one of her R&B ballads are real, honest, and relatable.” Essence Girls United noted, “Queen Naija’s album, missunderstood, touches the soul in a way that only Black music can.” “Queen Naija is, without question, who R&B heads should be checking for,” declared DJ Booth.
