In 1992, RuPaul, the original supermodel of the world, had one thing to say: “You better work!” “Supermodel” broke into the Top 50 of the singles charts in both the US and the UK. But with Drag Race a worldwide sensation, it’s no longer just RuPaul releasing songs….
Blair St. Clair, “Now or Never”
From season 10 of Drag Race and All Stars 5, Blair St. Clair can certainly sing and with the empowering and hook-y dancefloor anthem-like “Now Or Never”, she gave her fans an instant hit!
RuPaul ft. Alaska, Detox, Katya and Roxxxy Andrews, “Read U Wrote U” (Ellis Miah Mix)
An instant gay club classic, “Read U Wrote U” featured the top four contenders of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 2, and is the benchmark for further contestant infused songs from the show.
Alaska Thunderfuck, “Puppet”
She has a number of excellent songs, but the Lil’ Poundcake-inspired “Puppet” is undeniable fan favourite. The upbeat and catchy song featuring hysterical lyrics makes this a standout track from All Stars 2 winner Alaska.
Courtney Act, “Body Parts”
A semi-finalist on Australian Idol, Courtney Act’s “Body Parts” has been called a “fun, frothy and frisky ’80s throwback, with echoes of Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” and the production values of Giorgio Moroder.”
Sissy That Walk
One of the most well know songs from RuPaul, the queens from season 6 took part in the music video for this song. You just can’t help but strut around when you hear RuPaul tell you to Sissy That Walk!
The AAA Girls
The American Apparel Ad Girls were made up of Alaska Thunderfuck 5000, Courtney Act, and Willam Belli. To promote the partnership with American Apparel, they released their debut single, “American Apparel Ad Girls”, a parody of “Farrah Fawcett Hair” by Capital Cities. The song charted at number 10 on the Billboard Comedy Digital songs charts.
Aja, Alexis Michelle, Peppermint and Sasha Velour ft. DJ Mitch Ferrino, “C.L.A.T.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 9 had four New York City queens and all of them teamed up on “C.L.A.T.” delivering a sickening house banger that hits on everything from gender as a construct to building the drag art form.
Featuring The Cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3, RuPaul’s “Kitty Girl” strutted onto Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart at No. 18 with Kennedy Davenport, BeBe Zahara Benet, Shangela and Trixie Mattel all providing their own new verse on the song.
Trixie has never boasted about being a Lip Sync assassin and why would she when she can sing live vocals! Never viewing herself as a singer, she sang at the end of her stand up shows and crowds loved it. From there she started releasing songs and albums and now tours with them.
