Almost exactly a week after winning the third season of "RuPaul's Drag Race,"
the fabulously gender-bending Raja has released her debut single, "Diamond Crowned Queen." No, it's not the punk-rock version of "Superstar" that she mimed along to on the "RuPaul-A-Palooza" episode
of "Drag Race," but much like the Logo Network reality show itself, the song is totally over-the-top, gleefully trashy, and BSFW (barely safe for work).
The track, which brings to mind synthy '70s sleazefests like "Warm Leatherette," '80s industrial, and mid-'90s house music hits, is sure to be as controversial and polarizing as Raja herself. It features (penciled-)eyebrow-raising couplets about licking on triggers and feasting on sex for dinner, not to mention a lot of groaning straight out of a Berlin or Donna Summer/Giorgio Moroder remix. A 12-inch remix. Pun intended.
As for Raja's singing voice? Well, she does a lot more moaning and groaning than actual singing--let's leave the real vocal acrobatics to Raja's star makeup client, Adam Lambert--but who cares? This clip of Raja performing "Diamond Crowned Queen" at the "Drag Race 3" finale party proves that she can just lip-synch for her life any time she needs to promote her single.
So follow her, follow her, to her pretty pretty palace, and check out "Diamond Crowned Queen" below.
