Latrice Royale & Manila Luzon Release “The Chop” Music Video

New York, NY – Latrice Royale and Manila Luzon got the dreaded “chop” on RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race in the biggest upset of the season. This endearing, mismatched pair proved that team Latrila was a royal, magnificent force when they won the first challenge in All Stars history. Sent packing too early, these resilient two are not letting a minor setback discourage them as they release their inspirational duet, “The Chop.”

Royale kept the competition in perspective. “As far as winning, my prize was the blossoming friendship with Manila.

Drawing from their personal struggles to “make it,” Royale and Luzon want to remind fans that even when faced with hard times, we have the power to stay on the path to our individual destinies.

It is crushing to fail, especially when you put yourself out there by just trying to be yourself. But it takes a lot of courage to truly be who you want to be, especially in the busted face of adversity,” Luzon said.

The first original duet to feature RuPaul’s contestants came together regardless of conflicting schedules. Manila wrote and recorded the song in New York, while Latrice recorded her parts in South Beach, Florida. Remix producer Jared Jones, known for his work with RuPaul, Taylor Dayne, and Solange Knowles, combined their vocal tracks the night before the music video shoot. “I wanted ‘The Chop’ to represent the fierceness and sparkle that is Latrila,” Jones remarked.

With their trademark humor and wit, team Latrila is back!
