VELO’s new single is the title track of his latest album Cruzin which has already spawned two gay club dance hits, the ballsy ode to big meat, “Big D*ck Daddy” and the Latin-infused spicy track “Oye Papi.” For his next single, the tatted singer went looking for a diva who could rock the look and bust some sweet rhymes.
It was RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up Manila Luzon who introduced VELO to Litre. The two instantly hit it off and partnered on the single. Litre is no stranger to winning collabs, having tasted the sweet smell of YouTube success with her video parody of the Scissor Sister’s “Let’s Have a Kiki.” “Let’s Have a KaiKai” also features oft-times polarizing Drag Race queen Willam Belli.
WeHo-based Litre, who has auditioned for RuPaul’s show, admits that Drag Race is entitled to, “some props for putting what we do on the map,” but insists that the series is, “not the be all and end all.” Instead, citing the careers of trailblazing superstars like Heklina, Sherry Vine and Vicky Vox, Litre embraces the alternative yellow-brick road to stardom declaring, “I think the next drag queen that takes over pop culture won’t come from Drag Race.”
Litre is blazing her own trail with projects like “Cruzin,” noting that, “Velo and I are on the same page when it comes to producing great product.” The new single, which Velo described as “a dirty rap song for those pigs out there that love to grind to dirty words and hip hop beats,” was a great vehicle for Litre’s fiery brand of rap: “You got a paycheck. I got a talent. I’ll slay, I’ll kill, no challenge.”
Velo is already at work on his Spanish-language follow-up to Cruzin, which includes appearances by Litre, Pablo Hernandez and porn icon Boomer Banks. The Mexican rapper hopes that he can ride the current wave of Latin pop renaissance, like Luis Fonsi’s enormous hit “Despacito,” and bring a bigger voice to the Latin queer community.
