Trina aka “baddest b*tch,” wants to change her image. Trina has been a staple in hip-hop since the late 1990s, known for having some of the most sexually explicit lyrics. Well for her next project, Trina is trying to switch things up to a softer more romantic sound yet still empowering, “It would be more melodic—it’d almost be R&B,” she says in an interview with Newsweek. “It’d be more vulnerable.”

The Queen of Miami talks about how hip-hop is male dominated, forcing her to maintain a singular image and over the top hyper-sexualized rhyme. “I was around the boys so much I was thinking like one of them,” Trina says. “I kind of learned how to come out swinging with a bat.”
