RuPaul’s new album Born Naked is out today and the first track we’re hearing is a sparse and lovely duet with Martha Wash, Can I Get An Amen. The lyrics are from one of RuPaul’s most famous quotes: “If you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?” The album’s title itself references another RuPaul gem: “You’re born naked and the rest is drag.” This isn’t what we’re used to hearing from either ladies, but I think you’ll like it.
UPDATE: The clip has been yanked. Of course.
