Contemporary R&B singer and songwriter Queen Naija progressed from social media star to hitmaker in 2018 with the retribution ballad "Medicine." Based in Detroit, Michigan but raised a county away in Ypsilanti, Queen Naija Bulls started singing in church and writing songs during early childhood. As a teenager, she became known nationwide as a contestant on multiple seasons of American Idol, including the 13th season in 2014. Following that, she became famous as an internet personality for her YouTube channel Chris & Queen. On the channel, Bulls and then-husband Chris Sails posted various humorous videos with an emphasis on elaborate pranks. Upon the couple's split, Bulls focused on her music again. She debuted with "Medicine," a single that in April 2018 entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 45. Shortly thereafter, major-label Capitol announced their signing of Bulls, who quickly followed up that year with "Karma" and a self-titled five-track EP. "Medicine" and "Karma" were included on the EP, as was a collaboration with No I.D., "Bad Boy." After closing out the year with "War Cry," Naija returned in 2019 with the single "Away from You." ~ Andy Kellman & Fred Thomas
