In five years, Pabllo Vittar has unquestionably become the most accomplished drag queen in music worldwide, behind RuPaul. Sure, Ru has "Supermodel," but Vittar is incredibly serious about her career, having made history as the first drag performer to win a MTV Music Award and been slated as the first drag performer ever to perform their own original music at the now-rescheduled Coachella 2020 festival. This comes in addition to her collaborations with pop stars around the world. Now, after the project began to leak online, the star has released her third studio album, 111, early.
"This album is unlike anything I've released so far," Vittar said in a statement. "It's more artistic, there're more musical experiments. I'm very happy with the results and excited about the positive feedback we have had by now. My wish as an artist is to reinvent myself constantly to give new meanings to my work and dreams. Please enjoy the album and stay safe during these uncertain times!"
The new album is a nine-track project, named for Vittar's birthday November 1st. It includes a number of previously released songs and three brand new bops. Charli XCX, Ivete Sangolo, Thalía, Psirico, and Jerry Smith all get features with Charli notably appearing on the acclaimed 90s club jam "Flash Pose," initially released last year. The new songs include "Lovezinho," "Salvaje," and "Rajadão."
The project is trilingual featuring songs in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Though this release comes before the initial plans, fans can expect for Vittar to drop a deluxe version later in the year featuring "new songs, features from international artists, and reworks" according to a release.
111 is available for streaming on all streaming services.
