Brandy To Star In ABC's 'Queens' Opposite Eve & Naturi Naughton

Brandy is the latest star to be added to the cast of ABC’s pilot, Queens.

According to Deadline, the 42-year-old musician will star opposite Eve and Naturi Naughton in the series about four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s who reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches – their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

Brandy is set to portray Naomi, who was better known as Xplicit Lyrics, the highly skilled musical engine of the Nasty Bitches. A true artist with boundless musical talent — Naomi was certain she’d go on to mainstream success after the group’s demise, but she hasn’t.

The character description adds that Naomi is now “singing and playing her guitar in crappy dive bars where all people want is her old persona.”

When the group gets back together, Naomi is reunited with the only man she ever loved, and the rival bandmate who stole that man from her. But what Naomi wants more than anything is to build a relationship with the daughter she was never really there for — if she only knew how.

As part of the series, Brandy will record and perform original songs for it, as her character.
