Her voice can be high, sweet, and delicate; or fast, fierce, and in your face. “Pick a Trick”, featuring TwoClutch and Beijing, is the latter. Queen Philly has such versatility that when playing a fresh track by this upcoming artist, you never know what you’re going to get.
But that’s how the Queen rolls. “My music is reality,” she says, “You’re gonna get a little bit of everything.”
That’s the perfect definition of her life. She started in a rough situation, and has dragged herself up out of the ghetto, out of poverty, out of domestic violence, out of the mean streets. And she is killing it now.
With an ever-changing fashion profile and a sick, fresh sound, Queen Philly is the next big thing for fans of artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, Da Baby, and Nipsey Hussle. Her songs range from catchy and radio-ready – think Lizzo and Doja Cat – to hard, fast, and destined to be club greats.
From Humble Beginnings to Greatness
Queen Philly, real name Khadijah Comeger, is the very definition of strong, modern, independent woman. She owns multiple businesses, including a tax company, a hair salon, and a popular Kansas City nightclub called TheRoyal Playhouse. She also works as a club promoter and has worked with artists such as rappers Boosie Badazz, Philthy Rich, Big Boogie, 2Time, and T-Rell.
But she wasn’t always the successful, confidant women she is now. She started life in a roach-infested one-bedroom apartment with a mother who was never there for her. She dropped out of school as a teenager, and wound up pregnant with an older man’s child.
And the pain kept going. On April 7th, 2019, her wedding night, the atmosphere of love and celebration turned to tragedy when her son James died in a horrific house fire in Chester, Pennsylvania. The little boy was only seven years old. After the tragedy, Khadijah was so overcome with grief that she turned away news reporters trying to interview her.
James loved music. In her sorrow, Khadijah found comfort in music and it helped her to remember her son. Although at times she felt she’d hit rock bottom, she began to sing, and creating her own music paved the path of healing. Once she discovered her own voice, in more ways than one, she began to soar.
Riding Out the Storm
And her voice is absolutely something special. She can spit rhymes with the best of them, but she has a naturally lovely tone to her singing voice that can’t be taught or replicated. Some of her music is uniquely vulnerable, offering a glimpse of the frightened young girl she used to be, just hoping and praying that her life would turn out all right.
“My music is pain,” she says. “Success is not about being famous. Success is about finally being heard.”
In the end, all she really wanted was to tell her story – a story of love, loss, and overcoming life’s challenges.
“You have to lose before you win, whether it’s family, whether it’s friends, or even money,” says Queen. “God will throw you into a storm knowing you’re gonna come out mighty and ready for your blessing.”
Queen Philly is the real deal. Her music is fierce, passionate, and speaks of real-life trauma and drama.
