Earlier this month, fans were able to tune into ABC’s new musical drama series “Queens,” which stars Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez as the Nasty Bitches, a legendary hip hop group from the 90’s looking to make a big return in the present day. Also on the show is Cam’ron, who appears as a dramatized version of himself, as well as the former flame of Brandy’s character Xplicit Lyrics.
Matching each episode are songs that fans can enjoy as music videos and “official” singles on their favorite streaming platform — thus far, we’ve received “Nasty Girl,” “The Introduction,” and “Hear Me.” Earlier this week (Oct. 26), the latest entry revealed two additional drops titled “Wrecking Ball,” a Brandy-led ballad, and “Heart of Queens,” which sees an assist from the Dipset general. Whether in the studio or on the small screen, Cam’ron makes little work of the Grady Spivey III, Swizz Beatz, and Sean C.-produced cut with boastful raps about his and his collaborators’ fame and success:
“Home of the star studded, Harlem renaissance, I be in the heart of Queens, chains rocky, cocky, like I’m Apollo Creed, how you want it? Street dreams, high fashion tags, P-Sex is pink cookies in a plastic bag, navy polo, navy yankee, Navitimer, Butter Pecan, butter leather, my baby flyer, in that Range Rovey actin’ like I signed Kobe, I wanna give love a bad name like Bon Jovi…”
As seen on the episode of the same name, the accompanying clip for “Heart of Queens” sees the artists performing the track in front of a packed out crowd while Eric Jones, the manager of the Nasty Bitches (played by Taylor Selé), looks on. Near the end, things go awry as Brandy’s Xplicit Lyrics suffers a meltdown of sorts before disappearing from the stage.
Check out both “Heart of Queens” and the aforementioned “Wrecking Ball” below.
