Gia Gunn Embraces Her Bilingual Side With Alaska in 'La China Mas Latina' Video: Premiere
RuPaul’s Drag Race season 6 star Gia Gunn was a star from the moment she walked into the Werk Room. Initially becoming a meme for her signature catchphrases and later becoming a well-respected figure in the Drag Race community, the Chicago-born queen has earned her place as one of the most memorable individuals from the show.
Now, Gia has teamed up with season 5 runner-up and All Stars 2 winner Alaska Thunderfuck to show the world that she is a woman of many talents. The drag star has released her new track “La China Más Latina,” an upbeat club song that features the former Drag Race contestant seamlessly singing and rapping through her verses in both English and Spanish.
In the accompanying video for her new song (premiering below today, Aug. 29), Gunn starts out as a young geisha, who is quickly swept up by Alaska and transformed into a stunning, Latin-inspired queen. The video, directed by Alex Lepkowski and Jamal Wade, shows Gia embracing not only her personal heritage, but the heritage of her Spanish-speaking fans as well, using the video and song as a means of saying thank you to those who have supported her in Latin America.
Specifically, Gunn's fans from Chile are given a special shoutout on the track ("Y a dónde vamos?/Chile Chile Chile," Alaska and Gia rap during the song's first verse.) It's understandable why Gia would want to shoutout her Chiléan fans; she recently finished the second season of The Switch Drag Race, a Chiléan reimagining of RuPaul's Drag Race, where she became a runner-up for the crown.
