Iconic drag queen, musician, actor and all-around bad-ass, Shangela Laquifa Wadley (D.J. Pierce), slayed the crown last night on VH1’s Emmy-winning reality competition “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars,” and as the only queen ever to make a third appearance on the show has become a pop culture phenomenon and fan-favorite, making her The People’s Queen for Season 3! Today, Shangela released her new dance single “Pay Me” featuring Ryan Skyy, as she continues her DRAG SUPER-STARDOM reign after last night’s season finale. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
“Pay Me” is the new upbeat dance single from Ru Paul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 Finalist, Shangela. It features LA based music producer , Ryan Skyy. The single is the most recent addition to Shangela’s music catalog, including songs like Werqin Girl (Professional), Call me LaQuifa, Uptown Fish, and Man Candy. This electrifying club banger was created with a Vogue-style beat to keep people dancing right into summer. “I’m a high energy performer,” says Shangela, “And I always want my music to be something that I would get hype to in the club or in the car.” The song is the first of a series of tracks that will be released from Shangela in 2018. The music video for “Pay Me” will be shot this summer in Los Angeles. “I make music for Queens, and those who ‘werq’ it with the confidence of a Queen.”
D.J. “Shangela” Pierce is coming off a banner year, having just wrapped a scene-stealing role in Bradley Cooper’s upcoming musical blockbuster A STAR IS BORN alongside legends like Lady Gaga, Dave Chappelle and Andrew Dice Clay. A longtime passion project of Cooper’s, A STAR IS BORN tells the tale of a movie star trying to help a young actress/singer find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. The film is set to release in theaters on October 5 of this year.
