Queen, who will be supporting Burna Boy at the Hollywood Bowl on October 8, has amassed over 2.5 billion combined global career streams to date. Earlier this year, Capitol Records released missunderstood…still, the deluxe edition of Queen’s debut album, which features five previously unreleased songs – including “Set Him Up” feat. Ari Lennox. The New York Times’ Jon Pareles said, “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.”
