ABC Releases First Music Video For Upcoming ‘Queens’ Series

By Cesar Arredondo

ABC has released the first music video for “Queens,” the upcoming drama series co-starring Nadine Velazquez. The show premieres on Oct. 19.

“Queens” executive producer Tim Story directs “Nasty Girl.” The video features Velazquez and co-stars Eve, Naturi Naughton and Brandy performing in 1990s hip-hop style.

“Nasty Girl” came out hours after the release of the single by Def Jam Recordings, the official label partner for the show’s original music. Swizz Beatz is the executive music producer for the series’ original music.

Story has directed music videos for NSYNC, Tyrese Gibson, Sonique, India Arie, Beenie Man, Avant and Pete Rock. His film credits include comedy/drama “Barbershop” and the superhero “Fantastic Four” franchise.

The new single and video is the first taste that audiences are getting of “Queens.” The show revolves around four ex-members of a defunct 1990s hip-hop female band who reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger.

About three decades ago, they were legendary in the music business as Nasty Bitches, but now the 40-something-year-old women are out of touch.

Chicago-born Velazquez is best known as Catalina Aruca on the Primetime Emmy-winning comedy series “My Name Is Earl” and as Sofia Ruxin on “The League.” The first series won the actress, of Puerto Rican descent, a nomination to the Alma Awards in the Best Supporting Actress category. Her credits also include the TV series “Six” and the feature films “Flight”, opposite two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington and “Snitch,” opposite Dwayne Johnson.

In “Queens” Velazquez plays Valeria, a.k.a. Butter Pecan. The cast also features Eve as Brianna, a.k.a. Professor Sex, Naturi Naughton as Jill, a.k.a. Da Thrill, and Brandy as Naomi, a.k.a. Xplicit Lyrics. Additional cast members include Taylor Sele as Eric Jones and Pepi Sonuga as Lil Muffin.

Zahir McGhee and Sabrina Wind, along with Story, are the series’ executive producers. ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios, is the producing company behind “Queens.”

In June 2021, Disney said the series would premiere in select countries on its streamer Disney+, via the streaming hub Star.
