Released in conjunction with the season finale of Logo’s hit reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race, Glamazon is the fifth studio album from “female phenomenon” RuPaul.
Per usual, the “Supermodel” taps into the club market with dance, pop, and R&B hits such as the lead single “Superstar,” but after 20 years of sashay-ing across stages around the world, the entertainer and diva is now giving us an older, motivational side on Glamazon. Intro tune, “The Beginning,” brings the hook of, “This is the beginning of the rest of your life/Change your world/change your mind.” In “Get Your Rebel On,” she says, “Stand up/Light a fire up/Gotta fight to live/How you want to love/If you can dance/You can start a revolution.” The basic message in it all: Have fun, but while you’re at it, conquer the world. It’s a doable thing. Written by RuPaul and Lucian Piane, Glamazon is a lovely add-on for all the GaGa, Madonna and Britney fans.
Nevertheless, in 1992 RuPaul hit the Billboard charts with her most popular single “Supermodel (You Better Work),” which debuted at No. 46 on the Dance Club Songs chart, but eventually peaked at No. 2.
