Naturi Naughton says she’s ready for a “second chance” in the trailer for ABC music drama Queens.
In the newly released preview video, Naughton is shown with co-stars Nadine Velazquez, Brandy and Eve as they discuss bringing back their now-defunct 1990s hip-hop group the Nasty Bi-ches.
“Can you believe it’s been 20 years since we imploded on that stage in San Diego?” Naughton asks the women. Brandy says she’s ready to get the group back together. Eve isn’t convinced, but Naughton tells her it’s time to “find the fierce woman you used to be.” Velazquez agrees and says she’s ready to do it “our way this time.”
