Lagoona Bloo has a touching new single.
The drag performer and Nailed It! star has released "Hands," a music video that showcases her vocal talents.
Performing against a white backdrop with flawless makeup, Bloo bares her soul with lyrics like, "I was missing your touch," addressed to a possible flame. Directed by Austin Nunes, the video tells the journey of a relationship and longing.
“'Hands’ is about that person that you are crazy about and wish you could get a little physical with,” Lagoona Bloo said in a press release. “It’s about wanting to be wanted, desired, and touched! Like, don’t tell me you like me. Say it with your hands because I want to feel it.”
“I’m an incredibly affectionate person and as a drag queen, I am always giving my touch away,” Bloo added. “Whether it’s posing for pictures, hugging people, or giving a double air kiss. Even accepting dollars while on stage in a performance involves some level of intimacy. In a relationship, I need someone who can return the affection that I give! I crave sensuality and touch is very important to me.”
With over 44,000 followers on Instagram, Bloo is an influencer in her own right. But her visibility reached a new high Friday when she appeared on the Netflix reality competition with her baking partner, Selma Nilla. The drag performers won $10,000 for creating a roller coaster cake.
In addition to being a talented baker, Bloo is also an actor, dancer, singer, hairstylist, and makeup artist. She is self-described as "NYC’s Mermaid Pop Star." Bloo is a member of the drag group, Stephanie's Child, along with Drag Race stars Jan Sport and Rosé. Previously, the trio appeared on The Voice and America's Got Talent.
