You gotta hand it to RuPaul for her business savvy. Whether you’re a fan or not of her music, by the time a season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ends, you can’t get that season’s track out of your head. At that point, you’ve heard the song ad nauseum thanks to the final credits of each episode. Then the pièce de résistance, she enlists the Final 3 contestants to appear in the music video. Free labor is free labor, right? Since a new episode of RuPaul’s All-Star Drag Race airs tonight, I thought it was the perfect time to take a trip down Ru’s glittered memory lane.
One thing I noticed while gathering all the music videos for this post is how much the production value has gone up since the beginning. Season 4′s “Glamazon” featuring Sharon Needles, Chad Michaels and Phi Phi O’Hara is fabulously campy while the earlier music videos look like Grade 7 school projects. That said, Season 2′s “Jealous of My Boogie” starring Tyra Sanchez, Raven and Jujubee is my favorite. Not only because I adore Jujubee, but the song is incredibly catchy. Check them all out below, including RuPaul’s latest, “Responsitrannity“, featuring the All-Star contestants and guest judges.
