7 Queer Musicians Who Are Making Their Mark

Rap’s freshest voice is Chika, a 23-year-old old musician from Montgomery, Ala., whose lyricism and queerness are changing the game. The rising talent’s freestyles have gone viral over and over again, including a Pride-themed freestyle over Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You.” In her short career, she’s been praised by Cardi B, Erykah Badu, Diddy, Jada Pinkett Smith, Jamie Foxx, Snoop Dogg, and more, and she’s only just getting started. Earlier this year, Chika released her debut EP Industry Games and along with it the video for “Can’t Explain It.” The song enlists legendary R&B singer Charlie Wilson, and the video is a playful homage to beloved sitcom A Different World, where Chika assumes the character of Dwayne and chases after a female love interest. With her talent, lyricism, and artistic vision, it’s clear the bisexual rapper is ready to take the music industry by storm.Photo by Leeor Wild
