Alaska & Manila Luzon Spread Holiday Cheer & Jeers in 'Working Christmas' Video: Exclusive

Billboard

Thanksgiving is behind us, which means there's no beating around the pine tree any longer -- the holiday season is upon us.

Whether you're all about the Christmas cheer or the reactionary Grinch-like jeering, the latest offering from RuPaul's Drag Race favorites Manila Luzon (season 3) and Alaska Thunderfuck (RuPaul's Race Race All Stars season 2 winner) has your yuletide yin and yang covered.

In the "Working Christmas" video, premiering on Billboard today, Manila plays one of Santa's most exuberant North Pole workers while Alaska portrays one of Saint Nick's more disgruntled South Pole elves.

A drag queen Christmas tale unfolds as Manila gushes about making families happy while Alaska grumbles about Santa's less-than-generous overtime policy. Watch the video for the Christmas Queens 2 track below.


"I consider these queens my sisters, and it's always a joy to collaborate with each other. We have so much fun making music together, and touring together. Christmas Queens is a family effort!" says Manila Luzon. 

"Since it seems we are always traveling and doing shows, even during the holidays, Alaska and I wanted to dedicate a song to all those people who also work this season. 'Working Holiday' goes out to those earning their pay and a half: from retail employees at the mall and the kids selling popcorn at the movies, to the waiters at Chinese restaurants!"

"Working Christmas" comes from the Christmas Queens 2 album, which features new music from drag superstars Alaska Thunderfuck, BenDeLaCreme, Darienne Lake, Detox, Ginger Minj, Ivy Winters, Jackie Beat, Jiggly Caliente, Jinkx Monsoon, Katya, Manila Luzon, Miss Fame, Pandora Boxx, Phi Phi O'Hara and Sharon Needles -- plus appearances by Michelle Visage and Carnie Wilson.
