Artist Queen Sanaa has a music history that spans a lifetime. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Sanaa was raised by parents who were members of a popular band. She was destined to follow a musical path. Sanaa’s desire to sing began as a young child, and by age 7, her father taught her to harmonize with her siblings. She penned her first song at 13 and began to pursue her musical endeavors by participating in talent shows and joining school choirs. Some years later, Queen Sanaa (QS) emerged on the scene determined to make her mark in the music world. Her budding career came to a halt when her ‘twin’ brother lost his life during a tragic accident. In time, her determination to carry his legacy would bring her back to the music. An appearance on Prince Castro's sophomore album, ‘Times Ticcin: Volume 2’, was a demonstration of that determination. When asked to appear on the 2019 Spoken Gunz Female Cipher, Sanaa knew that it was time to go hard or go home. In fact, her single ‘Harder Way’ illustrates her determination to do the work. Queen Sanaa recently appeared as a guest artist on ‘Out The Dirt: Volume 1’. It is here that her ability to reach a widely varying fan base with her captivating delivery is fully realized. Sanaa has a passion for writing that greatly surpasses her desire to be a performer. Although her style is versatile, her sound is classic and will transcend the ages. Sanaa hopes to touch millions of fans and give them an opportunity to share her passion for music through her words. Her musical inspirations include singers such as Missy Elliott, Faith Evans, SWV, Mary J Blige, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, and Sade Adu. Her rap influences include Da Brat, Nas, Jay-Z, Method Man, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, and countless unsigned artists. You can find Queen Sanaa on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Soundcloud as QSQueenSanaa. Her singles, ‘Ring’, ‘Lord Knows’, and 'Revolution', can be found on all music platforms under Queen Sanaa.
