Bing, bang, bong!
How do they do it?!
For the second season in the row it looks like RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. has an actual hit on its hands. In the show's debut season the Frock Destroyers turned out "Break Up (Bye Bye.)" That song made it on the Top 40 charts, started a bit of a viral dance craze, and over 10,000 people signed a petition to get the group to compete at Eurovision. It was unsuccessful but the track left a mark on culture for sure. Now, the United Kingdolls are picking up where they left off, two years later.
If you haven't heard a "bing, bang, bong" or "sing, sang, song" joke this weekend, it's likely you need better friends. Since the latest episode of Drag Race U.K. debuted, the United Kingdoll's version of "UK Hun?" has been worming its way between the ears of many and coming out in all of their Twitter jokes and Instagram captions. And this isn't anecdotal evidence; there's data!

On Monday, Official Charts reported that the track was the most downloaded song so far this week. According to them, the song is set to enter the Top 40 charts. Those in the U.K have said the song is already getting play on the Top 40. We're sure the group -- composed of A'Whora, Bimini Bon Boulash, Lawrence Cheney, and Tayce -- are more than stoked. The song is number 4 on the UK's biggest chart show.
