But across the pond, we have our own royalty. And our Black queens bow to no one. Here is a list of our favorite melanated royalty who prove you don’t need a title to be a queen.

Mary J. Blige
We can’t even fathom losing our Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and knee-high boots, Mary J. Blige. The singer, songwriter, and actress is a legend in the entertainment industry, inspiring artists for years to come.

Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer Hudson, OUR American Idol winner is not only a powerhouse vocalist but also an actress and new talk show host. She is extremely accomplished being the youngest woman and second African American to reach EGOT status, a title only a queen could obtain.

It’s a shame that anyone would dare to disrespect this queen. Lizzo has been an inspiration for women everywhere and one of the best entertainers of the decade.

Gladys Knight
Gladys Knight shall not be forgotten or mistaken. The “Empress of Soul” is a seven-time Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. The “Midnight Train to Georgia” singer still performs and tours today.

Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama is forever our First Lady, completing the presidential term alongside her husband for eight years with beauty, intelligence, style and grace. Her regal beauty has no end.
