Cryin' For The Queen

Album: The Stoop (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • Digital Spy asked Imani Coppola about this song, which takes a pop at Amy Winehouse. She explained: "Oh, you know, I was just jealous. I was really struggling at the time. I was an artist who's been on the charts and then just got lost in the transition from cool, interesting music to f--king s--t pop. Finally cool music came back and she was kind of the front-runner and she was just f--ked up the whole time. But it's OK because the greatest artists are often the most f--ked up."
