Today, Queen Naija and GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter Ari Lennox unveiled the official video for “Set Him Up” with a YouTube premiere. The single is from “missunderstood….still,” the deluxe edition of Queen Naija’s chart-topping debut album, which was released by Capitol Records. View the official video, which was directed by Val Vega (JP Saxe, The Color Brown, JP Wilde) and shot in Atlanta, HERE. Santiago Salviche served as executive producer and Carla Johnson as producer.
Released last week, “Set Him Up” earned a spot on the playlist of The New York Times, with critic Jon Pareles observing, ”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.” HotNewHipHop praised the “sultry single” and The Source noted, “[‘Set Him Up’ is] a seductive tag team between the two sirens as they glide over the all-too familiar scenario of dealing with the same man at the same time.”
“Missunderstood….still” features five previously unreleased songs including “Love Is…” ft. J.I The Prince of NY, plus ”Butterflies Pt. 2” Remix feat. Wale alongside the album’s original 18 tracks. See below for track listing.
Queen has amassed over 2.5 billion combined global career streams to date. After its release last fall, “missunderstood” took the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and 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 24-year-old Detroit-area native her third chart-topper at the format, following the 2x Platinum ”Medicine” and the Platinum-certified ”Karma.” Follow-up single “Pack Lite” was recently 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.
