It’s a very good time to be RuPaul. Along with continuing his reign as the host of all the various renditions of RuPaul’s Drag Race, the star just debuted his new scripted series for Netflix, AJ and the Queen, and is currently preparing to begin a Las Vegas residency with RuPaul’s Drag Race Live. Now, Ru has one more project for fans to get excited about.
On Friday (Jan. 10), Ru did a surprise drop of his 13th studio album, You’re a Winner, Baby. The club-ready project follows in the footsteps of much of the superstar’s previous work, taking popular phrases from Drag Race, like “Bring Back My Girls” and the song’s titular track, and working them into thumping club anthems.
But fans of the drag diva will notice a few references throughout the album: On opening track “London,” Ru pays homage to the hometown of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK with the disco-ready club track. Closing out the album, Ru offers fans a remix of his original song for AJ and the Queen, “Ruby Is Red Hot,” courtesy of music production team Kummerspeck.
