Brandy has landed her latest acting role. The best-selling artist has landed a star role in the upcoming ABC drama, Queens. Brandy will play the role of Naomi, who is best known by her musical moniker, Xplicit Lyrics. As a member of the group, Nasty B------, Naomi emerged as a star. Unfortunately, things went awry when her bandmate and boyfriend formed a new relationship. Twenty years into the future, the band is looking to get back together and Naomi is looking to mend old wounds while strengthening a relationship with her daughter.
Brandy is not the only musician set to star in the show. Grammy-award winner Eve will star in the series alongside singer Naturi Naughton. Eve is best known for her roles in the Barbershop series and Eve. Naughton rose to prominence through the success of the Starz series, Power. Brandy has also cemented herself as a lead actress through her role in the series, Moesha. More recently, she appeared in Fox's Star.
This is Brandy's latest move in the world of entertainment. Last month, her 1997 remake of Cinderella debuted on Disney+. Not to mention, the classic film also features the late Whitney Houston as well.
“I’m so excited that Cinderella has a home now at Disney plus and we can celebrate, and share, and inspire a whole new generation," she told Whoopi Goldberg on The View.
At this time, it is unclear when Queens will debut on ABC. In the meantime, Cinderella is available on Disney+.
