If you haven’t watched your Tivo of Monday’s exciting conclusion of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season Five yet, it’s time to do that and stop claiming people are “spoiling” it for you. At this point it’s public knowledge that Seattle’s team Jinkx took the crown of America’s Next Drag Superstar! Yeah, of course we’re thrilled.
Just in time for this is a new single “Schizophrenic” by our friends and B40 Podcastees Two Dudes in Love (David Sternesky and Mat Dos Santos) featuring Jinkx Monsoon. The track begins with her iconic giggle, and eases into gorgeous deep tech textures while she inhabits the character of Little Edie as she did for RPDR’s “Snatch Game.” The track evolves throughout to a surprisingly lush emotional landscape, which David and Mat say was inspired by “the range of emotions in Jinkx’s performance.” Indeed.
