Adore Delano‘s music career may be one of the most interesting drag stories of the 21st century.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Adore recently competed on the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Although she didn’t win, she did placed in the top three and has since become one of the most successful queens to come from the show.
Prior to her run on Drag Race, Adore competed on the seventh season of American Idol as her boy alter ego, Danny Noriega. Although Danny fared well in the competition, placing in the top 16, his fan based remained fairly small.
Adore, not Danny, has now become a sub-culture music phenomenon who is quickly rising in popularity and dipping more and more into the mainstream music scene. Her first album, Til Death Do Us Party, broke records in 2014 and quickly rose on the iTunes Dance/Electronic music charts. And now, on the eve of the release of her sophomore album, ‘After Party,’ Billboard has released a sneak peak of her full album… and we’re in love!
Listen to the full album sneak peak below and watch the the music video for ‘Dynamite,’ the first single off the album. And don’t forget to head to Amazon to purchase the album, which is scheduled to release on March 11. Enjoy!
