QUEEN NAJIA LINKS UP WITH BIG SEAN FOR NEW SINGLE ‘HATE OUR LOVE’
Written by torresanz on February 5, 2022
Detroit artists Queen Najia and Big Sean have joined forces for the former’s new track “Hate Our Love.” The new track features a sample of Bobby Glenn’s 1970s song “Sounds Like A Love Song,” and celebrates an enduring love that goes through ups and downs.
“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,” Queen Naija said in a statement. “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!”
On Thursday (February 3), Big Sean joined Queen Naija on Instagram Live to discuss the new track, but in doing so also dropped a few hints about a new TWENTY88 album with Jhené Aiko. When Naija asked what else was on his plate, Sean Don spoke earnestly about the project.
“I’m here working on [a] new album and new TWENTY88, me and Jhené,” the Detroit rapper said with a grin. “Shit, we’ve been working on it for a little bit… It’s coming along good, though.”
Big Sean and Jhené Aiko’s TWENTY88 debut hit No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in 2016, selling 40,000 copies in its first week.
The rapper first spoke about a potential follow-up record during an appearance on Ebro In The Morning in 2020.
“Yeah, I hope so,” he said when asked if the duo would ever collab again. “Collabing with [Jhené] is like one of the easiest things ever, you know? When we both are in a mood, you know? ‘Cause when you in a relationship, too, sometimes you can be irritated with each other.”
