The single is the first from the upcoming QUEENDOM album; due for release in early 2020. It’s a musical journey that shines a light on female artists who are making waves in the historically male-dominated urban scene. 

QUEENDOM, is an album unlike any other in recent years. Why you ask? It features many up & coming artists from the respective worlds of pop, R&B, afrobeats, dancehall and beyond. Some of whom have already gained recognition by the BBC & KISS FM amongst others.

The album is the brain-child of James ‘JDS’ Sewell, a music producer from Birmingham whose passion to help support female artists is second to none. QUEENDOM is the first project from James’ own production company – It’s Not Over Entertainment. It features the incredible talents of Sheddy Maria, Sahfy, Sophia Lee Soul, Lekky, Jamie-Lee & Jay L’Booth.
