All Hail the Queen

All Hail the Queen is the debut album by alternative hip hop artist Queen Latifah, released in November of 1989 (see 1989 in music) on Tommy Boy Records[?]. The album was unusually successful for a hip hop record at the time, buoyed by the single "Wrath of My Madness". The feminist anthem "Ladies First" (with Monie Love[?]) remains one of Latifah's signature songs.

Rolling Stone magazine gave the album five stars.

All Hail the Queen peaked at #6 and #124 on Billboard's (North America) Top Hip Hop/R&B Albums and the Billboard 200 charts, respectively.
