Queen Naija andGRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Ari Lennox joined forces to share their new single, “Set Him Up.” The bold, infectious track finds the two R&B powerhouses having a frank exchange about their men. Upon discovering that they’re both seeing the same guy, the pair hatch a sly plan to set him up. Download/stream “Set Him Up” HERE. Queen Naija says, “I had so much fun recording this song with Ari! We started recording it a while back and I’m excited we were able to come together and get it finished. I know a lot of women who have actually realized they’re dating the same guy. We thought ‘Set Him Up’ would provide a fun take on this crazy kind of situation!”
“Set Him Up” is one of five previously unreleased songs that will appear on missunderstood…still – the deluxe edition of Queen Naija’s chart-topping debut album. Available for pre-save HERE, missunderstood…still will be released by Capitol Records on April 16.

Hailed by The New York Times as “the first soul star of the social media generation,” the 24-year-old Detroit-area native has already amassed over 2.5 billion combined global career streams. Last fall, missunderstood entered Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart at No. 1 and earned a spot in the top 10 of the Billboard 200.

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.
