Queens

 (premieres Tuesday, October 19 at 10 p.m. ET)

 

Four women in their 40s reunite for a chance to get back in the spotlight as the superstars they once were on 'Queens' on ABC.

The first episode opened with a montage showing the before and after of the girl group known as the 'Nasty B***h'.  The rappers, who are known as Professor Sex, Da Thrill, Butter Pecan, and Xplicit Lyrics, are now a mother of four, a gay pastor, a TV host, and a failed musician, respectively. This accurately portrayed the reality of many artists who have been forgotten and treated harshly by time. We flashback to 20 years before and are shown just how popular the women were with their brand endorsements, paparazzi, etc. But they've fallen from their height of fame, and boy, they have fallen hard. The episode then focuses on their individual characters and their personal problems. Brianna walks in on her cheating husband, Jill is avoiding intimacy with her husband and is having an affair with a lady, Valeria is not getting a promotion while Naomi is given a harsh reality check by her daughter for being an absent mother. Many across the world can relate to these conditions which got us sympathizing with the ladies. The show is a musical drama that will revolve around friendship and hip-hop primarily.

The Real Queens of Hip-Hop: The Women Who Changed the Game (premieres Monday, October 18 at 10 p.m. ET)


 

After watching The real queens of hip hop I believe it’s safe for me to say I’m loving this season already! Narrated by Salt of legendary rap group Salt-N-Pepa, Documenting the role of women in the birth and growth of Hip-Hop, Real Queens of Hip-Hop.

What stood out to me is that 2020 was an amazing year for females in hip hop having five  songs that made it to the top of the billboard which I find very amazing knowing the past history and how hard and judgmental the industry has become.

Da Brat, Eve, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Lauryn Hill, Yo-Yo, City Girls, Trina and Foxy Brown are just a few others who’ll be discuss.These groundbreaking artists open up about their biggest career moments and share a behind-the-scenes look into their personal stories.
