VIDEO: TODRICK HALL – MASK, GLOVES, SOAP, SCRUBS

While we’re all at home trying to figure out how to cope during this COVID-19 lock down, yesterday out performer Todrick Hall released a brand new EP called Quarantine Queen (named after LA drag performer Rhea Litre’s online show), which he wrote and recorded all six tracks in less than a week (does this make him the Tyler Perry of music?)

Hall has dropped the video for Mask, Gloves, Soap, Scrubs which is a quarantine re-tooling of his hit dance song Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels. The video features a plethora of celebrities, including: Brian Friedman; Peppermint; Bob the Drag Queen; Monet Exchange; Trinity The Tuck Taylor; Alyssa Edwards; Willam; Laganja Estranja; Nicole Scherzinger; Jade Thirwall; Tan France; Tiffany Haddish; Amber Riley; Baga Chipz; Tamar Braxton; Kandi Burrruss; Jonathan Bennet;, Amber Riley; Lisa Rinna and Paul Burrell.

In a statement about the album, Hall revealed that the idea to release a whole new body of work came to him just one week ago, and that he now is already prepared to share it with fans. “Nina Simone once said, ‘It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times in which we live,'” he wrote. I wrote this album in four days because I noticed a lot of people were down and needing something to uplift them, make them smile and want to dance during this dark time. I hope this inspires you to stay healthy, stay creative, stay safe and stay home while continuing to stay fabulous!”

“I by no means am attempting to diminish the severity of this pandemic, but trying to show that you can still be creative, still have fun and be fabulous from the comfort of your own home,” he said.

“I hope you enjoy, I hope it inspires you to dance (tag me, I will be watching and sharing) and I hope it brightens your day just a tad. Love you all and please stay safe. We are going to get through this. Mwah.”

The first time I heard this remake was last weekend when Todrick performed the song for the first time during the virtual concert courtesy of The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, and I thought it was cute, but a bit tacky.

While I’m a bit annoyed that mainstream pop stars such as Sam Smith, Lady Gaga and countless others have delayed their album released due to Miss Rona preventing them from properly promoting their new body of work, I don’t know how to feel personally about an artist trying to capitalize off of something as serious as COVID-19 writing Miss Rona-themed songs filled with cliches.

Anyways, check out the video below…
