[MUSIC] Bob The Drag Queen feat. Alaska Thunderfuck, “Yet Another Dig”

Bob The Drag Queen, winner of season 8 on RuPaul’s Drag Race, continues to be one of my favourite listens. Her 2017 single, featuring All-Stars 2 winner Alaska Thunderfuck, is a song that I keep playing again and again.

The song is a glorious performance, a fluently-performed dissection of some of the different fan-driven controversies and tropes of LGBTQ culture, profane and smart and funny. (The show’s Reddit group rates a mention.) Fans, mind, are not the song’s only constituency; the humour and wit is portable beyond that.

Yet another dig, I’ma get another gig
I’m gluing down my lace front, yet another wig
Collecting coins, getting yet another big paycheck
Who’s next? Tell me who’s on deck
You’re sippin’ on the Hater-ade, yet another swig
Frying up some bacon, bitch, yet another pig
I’m a Redwood and you’re yet another twig
All Stars 2 was yet another rig

As for the fantastic video, directed by veteran Assaad Yacoub, what can be said but that it has enough pitch-perfect humour to make first-time watchers burst out laughing?
