The New Orleans artist has been making waves since the 2000s, helping elevate the energetic hip-hop form known as bounce into the mainstream.

If you’ve never seen the Queen Diva live, be prepared. Her show is a spiritual experience — one that consists of self-love, booty-shaking and the kind of fellowship people usually experience at religious functions. It might seem strange to see "spiritual experience" and "booty-shaking" in the same sentence, but many really do leave her shows a changed person.
