Last night Eve, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez and Brandy made their comeback in the spotlight on ABC’s Queens. The series sees musical icons step into the shoes of artists who retired in the ’90s, but are now in their 40s and feel like something is missing in their lives.
Now that they’ve achieved what they want, the group reunites to stage a comeback and restore their former glory. Following the show’s premiere, Brandy and her friends released a few tracks that debuted on last night’s episode, including the touching “Hear Me”.
If you’re not in the mood to be in your feelings, the cast of Queens also dropped the song “Nasty Girl” with a super hot visual that can be more your speed. The third and final title to come out with episode one is an “epic rap figure”, called “The Introduction”.
Swizz Beatz has been recruited as the show’s executive music producer. “To see these queens come together in unity is amazing in 2021,” he said in a press release sent to HotNewHipHop. “This show is special in many ways to me and it is an honor to be the executive music producer.”
New episodes of Queens come to ABC every Tuesday at 10 / 9C. Check out the series trailer above and stream “Hear Me” below.
Words to quote:
But listen to me, I’m standing in front of your door
Listen to me – I don’t want to be afraid anymore
I just wanna love you the best that I can
And in return I will try to understand
All the hurt I caused when I was lost and weak
i hope you hear me
