Queens – Nasty Girl

ABC is getting ready to premiere the new drama series QUEENS on October 19th, which centers around a hip-hop supergroup comprised of four female rappers (played by Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez) who decide to reunite in their forties for another go-around. In true immersive fashion — not to mention a clever bit of viral marketing — the fictional group has come through with their lead single “Nasty Girl.”

The track itself is a nostalgic breath of fresh air, and it’s genuinely refreshing to hear the Ruff Ryders legend Eve spitting a verse once again. But if early consensus is anything to go by, it’s Brandy — or her alter ego Xplicit Lyrics — who really steals the show. While Queens aren’t technically a supergroup in the traditional sense, being that they’re playing roles in a series — the commitment that each party shows in “Nasty Girl” bodes well for the series when it drops in a few weeks.
