RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 2 winner Alaska Thunderfuck has just released a new video for her song “Come To Brazil” off her 2016 album Poundcake. And the final product is pretty “fabuloso.” That’s fabulous in Portuguese.
The visually stunning new music video features dance sequences galore, an epic seaside scene at the beautiful Guarujá Beach and many clips from Thunderfuck’s shows in Brazil.
The song is a nod to the Drag Race star’s huge fanbase she’s amassed in the South American country. She’s performed there twice, and both times her show sold out in less than two hours.
Alaska tells us: “Before I ever went to Brazil, I would be inundated with tweets and comments demanding “Come To Brazil!” “Come To Brazil!!” That intensity and enthusiasm online is only a fraction of what I got to experience when I actually got a chance to go to Brazil.”
During the song, Alaska talks about being a foreigner to Brazil’s gay culture, learning along the way what certain words mean.
“So I’m walking in the club and I’m like “Oi, migas!” And what do I see but the most gorgeous, sexy man I’ve ever laid eyes upon. And just when I think it’s love at first sight, I realize we’re both “passivonas.”
“Passivonas” is bottom.
At another part of the song, she explains: “So I’m walking down the streets of one of Brazil’s gorgeous cities And I keep hearing people yell “Cracuda! Cracuda!” Now, I don’t speak Portuguese but I can only assume that “Cracuda” means “Gorgeous, beautiful, young woman” …Right?”
“Cracuda” does not actually mean gorgeous, beautiful, young woman.
“There is an indescribable warmth and energy that I feel whenever I perform there, and so I wanted to make this song and this video a love ode to the fans of Brazil,” Alaska explains to us.
