“Come in at 6 in the mornin’. Where you been? Who is that texting your phone? Just a friend (okay). My intuition never lies. There’s nothing you can ever hide. Already got the screenshots, so there is no need to deny.”
The video finds Queen Naija, dressed in yellow attire, reading text messages on her phone. She confronts her man when he enters the room and addresses his cheating ways. Later, she gives him a taste of his own medicine.
The song was crafted during a detrimental time in Naija’s life when she was having problems with her ex. People wanted to know if she was staying with him or leaving. She recorded “Medicine” and perhaps her entire EP as a response.
“So you don’t gotta worry ’bout me. You made it clear that you’re unhappy. Go ahead and have your fun now. Just remember what goes around, comes around.”
The video was captured inside Capitol Records’ Studio A. It finds Queen Naija in a pinstripe outfit singing her heart out about moving on from being hurt.
Her relationship turned sour after her ex-man started making money and got a sudden case of amnesia. He replaced Naija with a bunch of promiscuous women. So she applauded him for doing that by saying, “Congratulations to you, what you wanted is what you got now.”
“Revenge is a dish best served cold and karma is when a person’s actions decide their fate.”
“When I first laid eyes on you. When I heard your heartbeat too. Oh, I never knew, I could witness an angel so beautiful. From the very moment you arrived, I felt something new inside. I developed a love that was so unconditional.”
Queen Naija dedicates a lovely song to her son. She promises to give him everything and encourages him to have optimistic thoughts about the future. But most importantly, she wants him to put God first and never let go of her hand while they travel through life and its unexpecting journey.
“I don’t wanna fall so fast. But I’m open. They always say that good things never last. And I know ’cause I’ve been broken. I’m tryin’ to protect my heart. But you’re making it so hard. And I guess it’s safe to say you take my pain away.”
Queen Naija bears her soul, revealing she’s deeply in love. With perhaps someone new? She gets butterflies in her stomach whenever she sees him. Also, she’s thinking about getting into a relationship because she can’t let go of him. Ever since he crossed her path, her life hasn’t been the same.
“I never really had a bad boy. You know I’ve always been a good girl. Crazy how it happened so fast boy. The way you rocking my world. Boy, I think you need a good girl. Someone to make you do better. Maybe, I could be a good girl. I could make you do better.”
Queen Naija reveals she’s a good girl and this is her first time being in love with a bad boy. Although she loves their connection, she knows she has to be cautious and take her time. Also, she feels, maybe, her goodness will cause him to change for the better.
Queen Naija’s self-titled debut EP is a solid body of work. Produced entirely by 30HertzBeats, it contains charismatic instrumentation, soulful vocals, and charming melodies. We highly recommend adding it to your personal playlist.
