“Cherry Pop” is the first single from Yo! Majesty’s upcoming second album.

“I’m Da Best” (feat. Shon B) is the first video from Shunda K of Yo! Majesty’s solo debut album “The Most Wanted.”


On Yo! Majesty:

“They've coined a female equivalent of macho that is far removed from the hypersexualized come ‘n’ get it attitude.” – Time Out London

“‘Daaaamn!’ That's all we can say when we listen to the rap riot that is Yo! Majesty...” – LA Weekly

On Shunda K's “The Most Wanted”:

“...its stunning velocity ensures it never drags for a second. This is an exciting, deep, and original work of hip hop. Get on it.” – MTV Iggy


The original voices of Tampa, Florida’s (and the world’s) first lesbian-Christian hip-hop group Yo! Majesty are back on the road. Shunda K and Shon B, the two rappers that made you move to their ubiquitous underground hit “Club Action” are following up a successful run of European dates with a US-tour sponsored (logically!) by Toyfriend, a Swedish vibrator brand created by the design company Tickler.

Joining Yo! Majesty on a handful of dates on the tour is female Swedish DJ duo Swedish Dyke Vibes. All of the upcoming dates will also feature a solo opening set by Shunda K of Yo! Majesty featuring material from her critically praised 20-track solo debut album solo debut album, The Most Wanted.

Released in early 2011 by Fanatic Records via EMI/Caroline, the occasion of recording The Most Wanted is what initially brought Shunda K and Shon B back together.  The album’s single “I’m Da Best” features a guest appearance by Shon B and both ladies appear in the video for the track.

The experience of working together again was a good one, so prior to the launch of Yo! Majesty’s recent European tour, Shunda K and Shon B hit the studio to begin recording a new Yo! Majesty album.  The new single “Cherry Pop” representing the first new Yo! Majesty music in years is now streaming at:

Shunda K will also be releasing new solo material soon. A remix and video for the track “It’s Time To Get Paid (feat. Snax)” from The Most Wanted is scheduled to debut later this month.

Shunda K and Shon B of Yo! Majesty are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
