Before she was a CoverGirl, a film and television actress, and a perfume designer, Queen Latifah was known for the smooth voice she displayed on her hit single “U.N.I.T.Y.” Penned for her third album, Black Reign, the award-winning track called for an end to sexual harassment and abuse against women, solidifying the performer as an influential voice in the hip-hop community. Latifah brings that passion to all her work, whether she’s recording music, acting, or modeling a line of cosmetics tailored to women of color. Although she had a successful run on the ‘90s sitcom Living Single and starring roles in Set It Off, Chicago, and Last Holiday, Latifah never forgot her musical origins. The artist has released seven albums over 20 years that win over eardrums with a blend of rap, hip-hop, gospel, and soul.
Latifah charms the audience during live performances, taking the stage with easygoing charisma as she belts out signature tunes such as “Nature of a Sista,” “Hard to Love Ya,” and “Bananas (Who You Gonna Call?),” a track about indecisive produce.
