Queen Naija

Queen Naija Bulls (17 October 1995), or simply Queen Naija, is an American R&B singer-songwriter and social media personality who jumped to fame with her participation in the thirteenth season of reality TV show American Idol. Born and raised in Ypsilanti, Michigan, she started singing and writing her own songs in her early childhood and auditioned for American Idol twice before making the cut in 2014. Following her elimination from the show, she created a video streaming channel named Chris & Queen with then-husband Chris Sails, which quickly amassed millions of subscribers. The couple eventually divorced over a cheating scandal, and she dropped her debut single, “Medicine,” on her own channel in 2017. The song became an Internet sensation and climbed to the top of Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs chart, which prompted Capitol Records to offer her a record deal. Preceded by the chart-topping single “Karma,” her eponymous debut EP entered the Billboard 200 at Number 26 and reached Number 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Missunderstood, her studio debut, saw the light in 2020 and went straight to the top of the US R&B chart aided by the singles “Butterflies Pt.2” and “Lie To Me,” featuring rapper Lil Durk. The album also reached number nine on the US Billboard 200 chart. A deluxe edition titled Missunderstood...Still featuring arrived in April 2021, backed by contributions from J.I the Prince of N.Y and Ari Lennox. That same year, Misunderstood was nominated for Favorite R&B Album at the American Music Awards. A new collaborative single with Big Sean, "Hate Our Love," was released in 2022 and certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In 2023, she released a handful of new singles: "Let's Talk About It," "Words of Affirmation," and "No Fake Love."
