Mariah Carey declaring that it’s TIME! But, before the Christmas songs and seasonal classics take over the airwaves and our playlists, we’ve been gifted some early presents this year by way of some prolific queer artists’ latest releases.Take a gander at the gift that keeps on giving: your weekly queer music roundup “bop after bop”….. The icon and legend we know and love, Billy Porter, has unleashed his fifth studio album Black Mona Lisa, proving once again that this multi-talented entertainer can do it all.
The album is a departure from the artist’s beloved Broadway roots and explodes into the pop music sphere laced with notes of funk and soul for good measure.
The record’s title track encapsulates not only this project as a whole but Billy as an artist: loud, proud, and full of joy.
It’s both a vocal showcase and a groovy celebration of self that commands you to dance with its brazen horns and jazzy, infectious rhythm.
