Queen Naija and GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter Ari Lennox unveiled the official video for “Set Him Up” with a YouTube premiere, which was directed by Val Vega (JP Saxe, The Color Brown, JP Wilde) and shot in Atlanta.
The single is from missunderstood…still, the deluxe edition of Queen Naija’s chart-topping debut album, which will be released on April 16 by Capitol Records. Released last week, “Set Him Up” earned a spot on the playlist of The New York Times, with critic Jon Pareles observing, “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.”
The album missunderstood…still features five previously unreleased songs – including Love Is… ft. J.I The Prince of NY – plus “Butterflies Pt. 2” Remix feat. Wale alongside the album’s original 18 tracks. Listen here.
Queen has amassed over 2.5 billion combined global career streams to date. After its release last fall, missunderstood took the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and earned a place in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The single “Butterflies Pt. 2” hit No. 1 on the Media base and BDS Urban AC charts shortly after, giving the 24-year-old Detroit-area native her third chart-topper at the format, following the 2x Platinum “Medicine” and the Platinum-certified “Karma.” Follow-up single “Pack Lite” was recently certified Gold by the RIAA.
