LaLa Ri Came To Eat The Runway On New Track With KLP

Australian performer/producer KLP has joined forces with 'RuPaul's Drag Race' alum and fellow musician LaLa Ri in a new track made for strutting: 'Eat The Runway'.

KLP and LaLa Ri

The track, addictively catchy in all of its glory, is a smooth, slick, attitude-filled banger, doubling expertly as a celebration of drag culture. LaLa Ri's vocals cut through with unbothered, powerful conviction as KLP's thumping beat pulses seductively underneath.

LaLa Ri's years of performing experience and passion for drag mixed with KLP's acclaimed music production skills and a history of collaboration results in a club-ready, celebratory banger meeting our ears just in time for summer.

Here, we caught up with the 'Drag Race' Season 13 alum herself, LaLa Ri, to discuss the collaboration. Yes, ma'am.

How did you learn about our KLP?! 
We actually connected with each other via Instagram, and the rest is history. The power of social media!

What has it been like to collaborate with her on ‘Eat The Runway’? 
It has been such an amazing thing! KLP is major and her music is simply everything, so for her to ask me to be a part of a record was an honour.

You said recently that you felt KLP’s energy was something you loved. Tell us a bit about that.
KLP is always in a loving mood every time I see her social media posts. I enjoyed watching her moments while she was pregnant too. It was such a joy! Made me want to have a baby. . . If I could. Haha!

What do you love most about music? 
Music has always been an escape for me. It allows me to be free in the moment. It can also be a form of therapy for me as well. I can put a playlist on shuffle and it’ll play all the music that I need to hear for whatever I’m going through.

And how do you think ‘Eat The Runway’ embodies this? 
'Eat The Runway' most definitely allows you to be free in the moment, and it’s a great pick-me-up type of song! It allows you to dance and have fun!

What are you hoping listeners take with them after listening to this track? 
To remember that you are IT baby! Keep on GAGGING the GIRLS! Live life and DANCE!

Is there anything you learned on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ that you have applied in the making of this track? 
To simply be free! Free to be you, free to say whatever, free to live your life however you want!

On the topic of ‘Drag Race’, you were on our screens literally just this year! What was the most amazing thing about being involved in the show? 
Whew! So many amazing things have come from being on 'Drag Race'. Of course, the platform of success it has created for me, along with now having so many amazing supporters. I get to travel the world doing what I love and even performing my own music (expect to see 'Eat The Runway' live at some of my upcoming shows). Also, the infamous 'bag' look was birthed. Haha! It’s been so amazing seeing so many recreations of the look. I’ve been loving them all!

The best way to listen to ‘Eat The Runway’ is. . .
