It’s been two years since RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 1 winner and All-Stars competitor Bebe Zahara Benet released her last single, ‘Jungle Kitty’.
Her latest release, ‘Banjo’, fuses her African roots with pop aesthetic for radio-ready perfection.
In an interview with New Now Next, Benet describes the single as “a mix of Caribbean melodies, Afrobeat rhythms, and pop sensibilities. I love my past work, but none of it reflects where I’m at in life now as much as this project. I’ve grown leaps and bounds as an artist and I think people will hear that on this single and upcoming EP.”
‘Banjo’ is the lead single from Benet’s new EP, Broken English, due out April 24th.
