Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen.
The song’s beat is reminiscent of something you might hear from Iggy Azalea or Azealia Banks, with lyrics that call out all of Tyra’s haters in a very (*cough*) gentle (*cough*) manner. We’re feeling it.
“For the past few months I’ve been working to achieve my dreams,” Tyra shared. “Through my music I am able to freely express myself in an artistic way, which is really good for me because – as we all know – I can be very vocal in ways that don’t seem acceptable to the general public. All the negative energy haters send to me I take it, harness it and transform it into an unapologetic rage that I release through lyrics. I hope Vogue can be an awesome inspiration to anyone that receives unwanted hate.”
“Sorry America – I have a potty mouth and I speak whatever I feel,” Tyra apologized. “I recorded and mastered Vogue all by myself. I hope you enjoy it!”
To accompany the track, which can be downloaded on Soundcloud for free, Tyra also released a fierce promo image styled to imitate a Vogue Magazine cover. Not only does Tyra look gorgeous, but the fake articles give you some insight into what the song is about (and who she’s singing it for).
If people are going to call you a b*tch anyways, might as well own it and give them what they want. Props to ya, Tyra.
