With all her endeavors, it’s sometimes easy to forget how talented Queen Latifah is as an actress, but the new trailer for HBO’s upcoming Bessie Smith biopic is a quick reminder!

In the film, Latifah stars as the blues legend, who was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. Known as “the Empress of the Blues,” Smith is also known as a pioneer of the LBGTQ community, as she didn’t hide her bisexual lifestyle from the world at that time.

The film also features Mo’Nique, Michael K. Williams, Mike Epps, and others, and premieres Saturday, May 16 at 8 pm on HBO. Check out the trailer below.
