Detroit natives Queen Naija and GRAMMY®-nominated, multi-Platinum artist Big Sean team up on the soulful new single “Hate Our Love.”  The deeply romantic track, which samples the classic 70s hit “Sounds Like A Love Song,” celebrates the kind of love that thrives despite hard times and haters. Download / stream “Hate Our Love,” which was produced by Mike Woods (Kehlani, Kiana Ledé, Yung Bleu), HERE.

“What I’d like for people to take away from ‘Hate Our Love’ is don’t let anybody come in between anything or anyone that you love,” says Queen Naija. “I’m so excited to finally collaborate with Big Sean on a record…it’s been a dream of mine for a while now. With both of us being from Detroit, it felt like the perfect match up and I hope everyone loves the song!”

Big Sean topped the Billboard 200 for the third time with his 2020 album DETROIT 2. His six-song EP with Hit-BoyWhat You Expect, was released last fall. He will be performing at Coachella in April.

Queen has amassed over three billion combined global streams in her career to date. Her debut album, missunderstood, entered Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart at No. 1 and earned a place in the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Nominated for a 2021 American Music Award in the Favorite R&B Album category, it includes the No. 1 hit “Butterflies Pt. 2” and the Gold-certified singles “Pack Lite” and “Lie To Me” ft. Lil Dirk. Views of the official video for the fan favorite “I’m Her” ft. Kiana Ledé, have surpassed 3.2 million and the track has racked up over 37 million combined streams worldwide. The deluxe edition of the album, missunderstood…still, includes five previously unreleased songs.

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.

Icewear Vezzo & DJ Drama Share ‘Paint The City,’ a Star-Studded Gangsta Grillz Mixtape

Published

By

Respected across the nation for his slick-talking rhymes and hustler’s mentality, Icewear Vezzo is always on his grind. Marking a new milestone in his prolific career, the Detroit native connects with DJ Drama to share Paint The Citya new Gangsta Grillz mixtape. A natural evolution from Vezzo’s acclaimed Rich Off Pints series, Paint The City finds the 6 Mile native spitting witticisms earned from a lifetime of hustling. The new mixtape bolsters Vezzo’s matter-of-fact flexes with Drama’s energetic exhortations, providing a jolt of electricity to the first-ever Gangsta Grillz tape by a Detroit rapper. Drama curates a selection of beats–many from regular Vezzo collaborators including Antt BeatzForeva RollinJune Da Genius, and Max Beats–that contrast Vezzo’s signature piano-led menace (“RNS”) with a more triumphant sound that reflects the recent Quality Control signee’s successes (“Ain’t No Turning Back“).

Paint The City illustrates the immense respect that Icewear Vezzo commands in the rap game–the 6 Mile ambassador rolls out the red carpet for a list of renowned guest stars to talk their smack. The tape is home to the buzzing single “It’s All On U” ft. Kodak Black, which generated over 5 million streams on Spotify and 11 million views on YouTube, and “Certified,” a sinister slapper that envelops Future into Vezzo’s sonic realm. Recent single “One Time” features a standout verse from trap legend Jeezy, and the closing track “Trippin” boasts a typically witty appearance from 2 Chainz. Amidst all the star power, Vezzo makes sure to put on for the D, recruiting his East Side associates Peezy and GT for the propulsive Michigan banger “No Talking.” The first full-length to be released since Vezzo signed to Quality Control MusicPaint The City is available everywhere on all platforms via Iced Up Records/Quality Control Music.

Vezzo’s new deal with Quality Control marks the start of an exciting new period of success for the budding superstar. Consistently racking up more than 4 million streams on his catalog per week, Vezzo reached national prominence with the Rich Off Pints series of tapes, including the Pitchfork-acclaimed Rich Off Pints 3, released earlier this year. Vezzo’s ambitions reach far beyond music, and even beyond the physical realm. The Iced Up Records CEO is a serial entrepreneur, starting his own businesses in fields as diverse as real estate, cannabis, snacks (We Eatin! brand recently dropped Vezzo’s own flavor of chips, called Vezzo Hotz), and jewelry maintenance. Vezzo is on track to be a pioneer in the burgeoning metaverse, with his own VezzoVerse launching soon and a forthcoming line of NFTs.

With limitless ambition and the work ethic to achieve his every desire, it’s only a matter of time before Icewear Vezzo takes over the game.
