Queen Naija New Single

Breakout artist Queen Naija returns with Karma. Moving on from the post break-up revenge fantasies of her first single, Medicine, Queen takes comfort in the concept of karma and examines her own insecurities, emerging with newfound strength in a soulful track that artfully fuses elements of jazz and hip hop. Karma is available for download and streaming HERE.

“Be confident, but not prideful,” says Queen Naija. “We all fall, and if you are too high up, chances are you may never recover from the fall.”

The 22-year-old Detroit native began singing in church at age three and writing her own songs in third grade, but her focus shifted when she and her former husband found fame online with their popular YouTube channel. When their marriage fell apart last year, Queen returned to her lifelong passion and penned a powerfully unapologetic song detailing her side of the story.
Premiering just hours before midnight on New Year’s Eve, Medicine was an instant smash. Within three weeks, it debuted at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 a remarkable accomplishment for an unsigned artist. Its success took Queen by surprise.

“I wasn’t even thinking about trying to get the song on the radio or anything,” Queen recalls. “I mostly did it because I knew people wanted to know what was going on with me and my ex, and I wanted to tell them myself why I wasn’t with him anymore.”

“With its hip-hop infused beat, silky, lip-glossed vocals and Instagram caption-ready lyrics, the song checked all the boxes for chart success,” observed Billboard. Over a simmering R&B groove, Queen flips the narrative From putting you on [do not] disturb, to FaceTiming a Tinder feed of other dudes, Queen imagines the actions of a bolder, empowered alter ego, a 2018 variation on Beyonce’s If I Were A Boy.

Spotify streams of Medicine have surpassed 13 million, radio spins on Pandora are nearing 20 million and views of the official video now exceed 40 million. Queen has been greeted by throngs of fans, screaming and singing along to Medicine, at in-person appearances.
She says, “To me, Medicine felt like a typical song from my own experience, but it turns out that a lot of other people have had this kind of experience as well. Girls tell me they play it in their car when they’re trying to get over a breakup, or they got done wrong by their man.
As she gears up for the release of her debut EP, Queen is channeling more of that real-life emotion into each song. “For me, it’s about changing people’s perspectives and letting them know they’re not alone in whatever they’re going through,” she explains. “I want to make music that captures people, that gets into your soul, the kind of songs you need to keep playing over and over.

Looking for Love

Important Qualities to Consider when Looking for Love :
We all want to be able to settle down with someone special one day but finding the perfect partner is not always easy. While there are plenty of resources to help you find love these days, such as online dating sites, you have to be sure that the person you choose has the right qualities. It is not all about appearance, which is something that you need to remember when you are looking for that special someone.

 
While you do not have to go over the top and start carrying out a background check online every time you find someone you like, there are certain qualities that you should look for. This will make it far easier to find someone that you will not only be attracted to physically but will also enjoy the company of. Relationships that are based purely on physical attraction are far less likely to succeed in the long run compared to those that are meaningful on a deeper levels.

 
What else you need to look for :
Of course, physical attraction is important in a relationship. However, you should remember that it is you that must feel attracted to the person not your friends and family. So, don’t worry if your friends don’t like the look of the person you are interested in – as long as you have that attraction there, that’s all that matters.

 
One thing you should look for when you are looking for love is someone that has a good sense of humor. Unless you want your life to be deadly serious all the time, it is important that you find someone you can have a laugh and a joke with. Finding a partner with a similar sense of humor as you can be really beneficial because it means that you are likely to have a lot in common from the types of movies you like to the types of activities you enjoy.

 
Another important quality that you need to look at is just how much the person has in common with you. Of course, they do not have to like every little thing that you like. However, having some similar interests is important because it means that you will be able to do far more together when it comes to your free time. If you enjoy things such as walking, cycling, and hiking, finding a partner that prefers to be slumped in front of the TV in all their spare time could make things difficult when it comes to spending quality time together.

 
One more thing that many people look for is someone that can provide some essence of security and stability. This doesn’t refer to how much money they earn or what assets they have. It means finding someone that you can wholly trust and someone that wants to work toward the same life goals as you. This will enable you both to work toward a common goal such as eventually settling down and starting a family.
