But now that July is here and summer has full-on kicked us in the balls, it’s all about the outdoor “Party.” The famed West Coast performer — and star of the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and seventh season of American Idol, what up! — dropped a new music video today, and it’s equal parts terrifying and awesome.
But it makes us want to be outside, like, right now.
In “Party,” the 24-year-old born Daniel Anthony Noriega pays tribute to everything from Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” to Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time,” with shout-outs to Nena, Brody Dalle, and Bacardi.
In the colorful-ass video, Delano throws a backyard bash, the kind we wish we were invited to — bare-chested clowns, kiddie pools, and balloons.
A whole lot of fucking balloons. Le sigh.
By the way — Delano’s debut studio album, Till Death Do Us Party, dropped last month via Sidecar Records/Producer Entertainment Group.
