If you haven’t heard of RuPaul’s Drag Race over the past decade, then you must have been living under a rock. Season 10 queen, Blair St. Clair, takes her first plunge into the music industry with the rip-roaring debut album, Call My Life.
The Indianapolis-born entertainer may have only placed 9thon the tenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but won over fans with her retro style and her youthful energy. The release of Call My Life follows the unprecedented success of lead-single ‘Now or Never’, released on the day of her elimination from the show, which has racked up nearly 2 million YouTube views in two months. When speaking to Seventeen.com, Blair St. Clair spoke of the meaning behind the club hit:
“It symbolizes living life in a hazy, unhappy lifestyle, and dreaming in color and finally making a choice and taking flight into actually making dreams into reality.
“The media response has been so strong with how people have connected to it, so I want to keep working more on my music and developing Blair St. Clair.”
As the music video to ‘Now or Never’ may suggest, Blair St. Clair is not a queen to be messed with. The superbly-produced electronic dance anthems of Call My Life saw the album debut at Number 1 on the American Dance/Electronic Album chart, becoming the first Drag Race alumni to achieve that feat.
Second single and title-track, ‘Call My Life’, opens the record and it’s a non-stop party from that moment on. Elsewhere, Blair ropes in fellow Drag Race competitor and All Stars 2 winner, Alaska Thunderfuck, on ‘America’s Sweetheart’ as Thunderfuck brings her classic tongue-in-cheek comedy to the track.
Whilst on RuPaul Drag’s Race, Blair St. Clair candidly opened up about her experiences as a rape victim and problems within the LGBT community. The queen was hotly tipped to feature on the upcoming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 4 but, as the season begins to film, those rumors look less and less likely.
