Queen Naija Gives Birth… To Her 1st Tour (Ep. 1) | The Birth Of Queen Naija | MTV


(heart pumping) – This is my first tour. (singing) – When I thought that I was
pregnant the second time, a lot of people, they was
like, “Your career has ended.” ♪ Oh, hey baby ♪ Like, “You ain’t gonna
be able to finish tour. You gonna have that baby
right in the middle.” Like all types of stuff. (child cooing) All right, come on, baby. But, I don’t care what they say. Momma, gotta go and get pretty. – [Child] Mama!
– I’m doin it. I’m superwoman. (piano playing) (audience cheering) What’s up LA? (audience cheering) Y’all better help me sing it, now. ♪ I held you down for the longest ♪ ♪ And I was with you through
all of your darkest moments ♪ ♪ Feels just like yesterday
when we were homeless ♪ ♪ Got you some bread, and
start treating me bogus ♪ ♪ Talking ’bout you wanted somethin’ new ♪ I call this tour The Birth of Queen Naija because it’s like the
beginning of Queen Naija as an artist in the music industry. – And it’s the first day of tour. How y’all feel? – I feel– – We just tryna make it, baby. – I feel like I need to get glammed up. – You need to get glammed up? – Baby Renzo is here, too.
– One. – Say hi. – Yes, yes. – A lot of people know
me just as a YouTuber. So, this tour opened a lot of people’s eyes to me as an artist. (hip hop music)
– [Clarence] Let’s get it. Big tour bus time, big cheeks. Winnie the Pooh got the big cheeks. Let’s get it. I love it. – Queen is an artist who
started off on YouTube. And that’s important to say
because I think she was born for this. But I think her situation
or where she was at in life kinda guided
her to get on Youtube. – Growin’ up, it was kinda hard. I’m not gonna say that, you know, I was poor, but we did struggle. If I never would’ve known
how it was to struggle, I wouldn’t know how it was to
work hard to get to something. – There’s like a stigma with YouTubers. Like, “You did this
’cause of this fanbase. It’s really not real. People don’t really like what you do.” So I feel like, for Queen, it was like, “I’m gonna show you, like, I’m this person that you guys tried to say I couldn’t be.” (hip hop music) – This is, like a bigger day. – [make-up artist] It’s a huge day. Because you’ve got people
from industry here, which, I don’t really
care because I go there and I always, like– – [make-up artist] Kill it. – Kill it. But, the fact that my nose
is stuffed now is messing with me. It’s messing with my voice now. I’m pregnant, waddling, this leg is bad, I got a charley horse in
this leg that won’t go away. Oh, yes! Is that my orange juice? – A lot of people said she’s pregnant, she’s gonna stop halfway through tour or she’s gonna lose her voice
or we shouldn’t go on tour. And not once did she lose her voice. Not once did she not make a show. Not once did she miss a show. – In the very beginning, it was hard. I couldn’t keep nothin’ down. I was always nauseous. So, we’re pulling over to vomit. It was annoying, but now
everything’s been good. No morning sickness, always craving stuff. I gained 20 pounds. I mean, I guess it’s okay. I need a little meat on my bones, anyway. But, you know, after this child, I’m ’bout to be snatched. So, you know, I’m about to
be a sexy mama with two boys. I have to watch out ’cause I
know when the boys be at school when they get older, everybody
gonna be lookin’ at they mom. Im’ma be a hot one. Hot cougar. (child mumbling) – Huh? (child mumbling) CJ, I don’t understand what you sayin’. – I don’t understand what you sayin’. – So CJ joined me in
the middle of my tour. Me and his dad is co-parenting. So, it was my turn to get him. All right, CJ, down. All right! – All right. – CJ, you want time out? Don’t say it. – It’s been a little harder
than being by myself, of course, but I feel good about it. Because I get to have him by my side, and he gets to see mommy
sing and this is going to be our lives. (laughs) You like it? – That’s pretty nasty. – (laughs) It’s nasty? (hip hop music) – What’s up?
– How’s it goin’? – [All] Surprise! – Oh, wow! – [Interviewer] Were you
concerned about going on tour while you were pregnant? – No, I really, really wasn’t. I wasn’t concerned. I just knew I needed a good
support team around me. And I got that, so I’m good. Oh, you like the paper? Here, you wanna hold the paper for me? – [Woman] That’s from Whitney. – It’s a breastfeeding scarf. – [Woman] Oh, it’s a cover
if you’re breastfeeding. – Well, you know, I really don’t care. I just whip it out. (laughing) Legend Lorenzo White is the baby’s name. I hate my last name. So, of course, he gonna
have the dad’s last name. And, hopefully, I get
the dad’s last name too. Okurrr? – Two, two. – Yep! – Yep! (laughing) – Yep! – Queen will always be known
for doing things her own way. (singing) – The way she did YouTube, the way she entered her music career, the way she parents her children. Just, you can’t put Queen in a box at all. – How can I do that while pregnant? You see that? Drop it down, drop it down, down low! Drop it down, drop it down! – That baby gonna drop. – Queen with Lorenzo and
CJ runnin’ in the back, and having to watch CJ during the day, she still comes out there
and sings her soul out, and leaves it all out on the stage. It’s amazing to watch. I really don’t know how. I don’t even know how. I couldn’t do it. – Amen. (clapping) – Seeing her singing makes me feel proud. And sometimes I even get emotional. But it’s like I seen her
when she was just singing in the basement of her mother’s house. Now she’s doin’ what
she always wanted to do. So, I feel very proud of her. A lot of people said she
wasn’t gonna be able to do it. And she did it. ♪ Obviously, you forgot all the times ♪ ♪ that I held you when you ♪ (crowd singing) ♪ I stood by your side ♪ – For people who think that being on tour while being pregnant is hard, trust me, it gets a little rough. But, honestly, workin’ a 9 to 5, getting up every morning, going to a job that I didn’t like, but I had to do it because I needed the little
$700 every two weeks, that was hard. Not having a place of my
own, staying on the west side of Detroit in a house with no heat, no hot water, no lights, with 13 people in a three-bedroom house,
sleeping on an air mattress with my six-month old
child, struggling so hard to find a job after I
lost my previous one. And when I finally found it,
I got fired the second day because my car broke down getting to work. That was hard. (singing) I love when ya’ll sing it. When it came to pregnancy
and that, I didn’t care. ‘Cause, like, I knew I could do it. I don’t know, it just
didn’t faze me I guess. I mean, I knew it was going
to be harder, but that’s life. ♪ Wishin’ that I looked
like someone else ♪ ♪ Like the girls you liked on Instagram ♪ I hope you enjoyed this inside look at my life on the road. Make sure to click over here to check out more content and subscribe. (kiss)
