RuPaul’s Drag Race Top Three Finalists Premiere New Music Videos

Another season of RuPaul’s Drag Race comes to an end, and the release of a new batch of music from its queens begins. Season 7 contestant, Miss Fame already released a song last month titled “Rubber Doll,” and tonight, the final three, Ginger Minj, Pearl, and Violet Chachki, have premiered music videos for their debut singles.

Ginger Minj’s “Ooh Lala Lala” is a big-band song about ignoring what the haters say while doing what makes you happy. Ginger was a stand out this season when it came to the acting and comedy challenges and has proven to be one helluva performer. Opting not to travel down the same pop/dance music route that most of the Drag Race alumni go in is slightly risky, but the style suits her vocal chops — not to mention the message of the song makes us love the Minj even more. Ginger was the winner of the “Divine Inspiration” challenge earlier in the season, and she clearly took some inspiration from the drag legend and incorporated it into this video.

Violet Chachki continues to channel her vintage pin-up doll look in the video for “Bettie.” Equal parts Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese, Violet serves up a happy housewife and a saucy dominatrix who knows her way around whips, chains, ball gags, and a Jello Mold. While Violet’s vocals are heavily autotuned, it works for the dark and edgy tone of the song. “Bettie” will be in heavy rotation at all the sex clubs this summer for sure. Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo from fellow Drag Race top three finalist Pearl in the video.

Speaking of Pearl, “Love Slave” is a four-minute EDM track that is as hypnotic as it is catchy, but will probably go down in Drag Race herstory as being the song with the least amount of vocals in it. Pearl has been a fan favorite throughout the entire season, and at this point, she can do no wrong. “Love Slave” is the first track from the debut album, Pleasure, which already holds a spot in the top dance albums chart on iTunes in its pre-order format. The video is a trippy visual experience and will probably make you want to pop some “E” and hit the dance floor. If you’re looking for some simulated kai kai action, you’ll enjoy the scenes between Pearl and season five queen, Detox. Flazéda!
