Now this is what I call a slay!
The ever-popular Now That’s What I Call Music series is getting really gay this year, releasing the all-new Now That’s What I Call Proud collection of queer anthems!
It looks like you have the playlist for your Pride party all ready to go with this new album full of terrific songs by queer artists celebrating life and love.
Honestly, this tracklist is a ten out of ten! New and old legends, music for the gays, theys, and the girls, both bops and bangers; it’s got it all! Legends like Elton John, George Michael, Melissa Etheridge, and Indigo Girls, as well as plenty of the new generation of talent like Lil Nas X, Hayley Kiyoko, Kim Petras, and Troye Sivan are featured throughout.
The only thing it’s missing is a Rachel and Kurt duet from Glee!
Now That’s What I Call Proud is an all-queer follow-up to last year’s Now That’s What I Call Pride, which featured anthems from LGBTQ+ stars like Lady Gaga, George Michael, Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood, as well as allies like Christina Aguilera, Cher, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Donna Summer, and Diana Ross.
