Multi-platinum artist Wale joins Queen Naija for “Butterflies Pt. 2 Remix.”
While Queen’s warm vocals celebrate enduring love, Wale’s verse tells a story of early infatuation flaming and then fizzling out, leaving him with the realization that he was just a side thing. Since arriving in 2006, Wale has consistently gone against the grain, releasing a series of albums that include the Billboard 200-topping The Gifted and The Album About Nothing and 2019’s Wow…That’s Crazy, which includes the No. 1 single “On Chill” ft. Jeremih.
Released in March 2020, “Butterflies Pt. 2” is the hypnotic sequel to Queen Naija’s “Butterflies,” which was one of three Platinum-certified singles from her self-titled debut EP, released in 2018 by Capitol Music Group. “Butterflies Pt. 2” landed on the biggest R&B playlists on four major platforms and has already surpassed 33 million cumulative global streams.
Shot in Atlanta, the “Butterflies Pt. 2” video traces the many stages of a relationships. Directed by Roger Alexander of AlphaMale Visualz (T.I, Rick Ross, 2chainz), it stars Queen and her boyfriend Clarence White.
RESPECT. Magazine noted, “[The video] 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.’”
