SONG OF SUMMER?

Adore Delano Drops Heartbreaking Ballad, Shatters Every Awful ‘Drag Queen Single’ Stereotype

IADOREUPeople started speculating that RuPaul’s Drag Race season 6 runner-up Adore Delano would use the competition’s platform to launch a potential singing career the moment she was cast.

Her sexy male alter-ego, Danny Noriega, was a semifinalist on American Idol season seven, and he expressed several times during the Drag Race season that his dream was to become a drag singer that would be taken seriously by the industry. Delano’s debut single, a “hyper-sexualized track” from the ‘hood called “DTF”, was released last week.

Today, Delano drops her second single from her upcoming debut album “Till Death Do Us Party” while simultaneously proving that not all drag queen singles are insufferable campy jingles about botox and dicks.

Below, the video for “I Adore U” is admittedly Delano’s “most personal” to date. It’s a haunting reminder of the emotional pain that comes in the wake of a breakup — “It’s about a boy named Colton Moyer,” she reveals. “He is such an awesome guy. We were dating and I hurt him so bad.”

      It would be funny if Danny/Adore ended up selling more CD’s than the winner of the Season of Idol he was kicked off of. I think it was Jordan Sparks.

      I always thought she sang better than Courtney but that’s just my opinion.

      @ questions for the Editors of Queerty.

      Several articles have come out recently that ask us to post our comments but aren’t allowing comments “The Carmen Carerra Article” etc… I wasn’t sure if that was a new policy.

      Also, is there anywhere we can look to see which words Queerty screens out? There was a response I posed that kept getting blocked that took forever to figure out which word was the one blocked.

      Thank you!!

      And again about Adore, Courtney could sing well, but Adore’s voice was pretty amazing, I’ll be checking out the CD.

      Possibly, I thought it might just be an accident.

      Yes, the post section on the latest Carmen Carrera nonsense is nonexistent.

      Werk queen! And I’m sorry, but Courtney could not sing. There is no competition between her and Adore when it comes to singing. Standards must be incredibly low down under, because that bitch was shrill.

      Kid’s got talent. And I must give props to her video directors/producers. These high concept videos of Adore’s are really well shot and well done.

      She’s coming out with some good, original, well produced and interesting music that for once isn’t a damn parody album or about super queen camp fluff crap. Good For Adore.

      Two of the banned words are “she male” (as one word) and tran*y. Ironic.

      Queerty has some amazing censors. Truly, ban certain words but leave others intact. Like replacing one letter in a word makes all the difference?
