Who is Queen Cobra? ‘The Masked Singer’ Prediction + Clues Decoded!
Reading Time: 4 minutes
The final group of singers on The Masked Singer season 7 not only came to win, but they came in royal fashion! Between Queen Cobra and Prince, these new characters brought performances fit for a king. And Queen Cobra could be one person, or up to SIX based on her first time on stage!
But who could be behind the Queen Cobra mask? We’re breaking down all the clues and who the celebrity is under the mask.
Clues on The Masked Singer Season 7
Queen Cobra brought the mystery into her first clue-mercial and performance. The clues start with a siren ringing and a person running away with a money bag from behind a pile of trash with a rocket painted on it and CAUTION tape over it. Multiple Cobras appear on the screen at once, leading the judges to comment there may be multiple people.
The Cobras take on one of the Men in Black dressed as a pirate and two dressed like masked villains/heroes. There are some comic book-style graphics that pop up saying “KAPOW”, “BOOM”, and “BAM” as they fight. We see a coffee pot and a mug with the Batman logo on it. Queen Cobra says, “the best way to wake baddies up, is Reptile Roast in your cup” as the two Cobras cheers their mugs. Then, a picture of Bradley Cooper is shown on the screen. She says Reptile Roast has been “turning goodies bad since 1990.”
When her performance ended, Queen Cobra gave some more clues. She said, “I am here to keep you all on your toes and guessing. And to attack the competition! So get ready for some action.”
Popular Guesses for The Masked Singer Queen Cobra
Jenny went first and thought it could be a mother-daughter duo, like Jada and Willow Smith, but then went with Brandy and Monica. Again, this is based on no evidence there’s more than one singer! Ken took the Batman clue and ran with it, guessing Queen Cobra is Anne Hathaway.
On the Internet, predictions are all over the place. They range from Sheryl Lee Ralph of Moesha and Dreamgirls to a member of En Vogue to Anastacia. Vanessa Williams, Fantasia, and members of Sister Sledge are other popular guesses.
Who is Queen Cobra on The Masked Singer?
This is another one that took a lot of piecing the voice together with the clues, but some of the possible clues about the number of Cobras helped guide our final prediction too! And that voice is a memorable and recognizable one.
Taking everything we know, (at least the first person to sing as) Queen Cobra is…
Cindy Herron from En Vogue!
One big question mark is whether more members from En Vogue will appear in later performances or not! But for now, we’re confident it was Cindy singing in the first performance from her voice. And let’s take a look at how the clues back up our prediction.
First of all, we saw six Cobras on stage and En Vogue has had six members in its existence. The beginning sequence of their clues, with the robber running away with a bag of money, could be a reference to their EP, Runaway Love. Queen Cobra also mentioned in the clues “since 1990,” which is the year En Vogue released their first album. Another nod to their music was the rocket clue, because they have a song titled “Rocket” that came out in 2017 and was their first top 10 hit in over 20 years!
The Batman and superhero clues have an easy explanation, since En Vogue made an appearance in the Batman Forever movie. This would also justify the comic book graphics used throughout the clue-mercial. Bradley Cooper’s photo also lines up with the fact that En Vogue sang the theme song for “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper.” And the coffee being promoted in general is a clue pointing to their latest record, Electric Café.
