“It’s a very serious piece of work,” says Divina.
Divina De Campo proves she’s more than just a “red wig and silver dress” in her hilarious music video for A Drag Race Song.
In the clip, the RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star pays tribute to camp, burlesque, femme and punk performers as she dons several different lewks, one of which sees the legendary queen in an orange beard with hairy armpits. C’mon versatility!
“I think a lot of the time, people release music for the sake of releasing music,” Divina told us of the track. “That’s sort of how I feel about it. Sometimes people release music when they really shouldn’t. Everything that I do, there are layers to it.
“You can take the surface layer, the entertainment, or you can look at it deeper. A lot of what I make is like a collage; there’s lots of different elements and then it all adds up to an idea, whether you understand what that idea is or not.
“To me, that doesn’t really matter. It’s more about me making something that I’m interested in and hopefully, other people will be as well. That was kind of… what it was. It’s a tongue-in-cheek poke at everybody.”
However, Divina clarified that she loves music from former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants, specifically pointing out Manila Luzon, Alaska Thunderfuck and Adore Delano, but jokingly added: “But it’s all very similar isn’t it?”
A Drag Race Song is the first song taken from Divina’s debut EP DECODED – listen to the six-track collection here.
