The era of Ru Paul’s Drag Race may have put performers on the international circuit, making household names of its superstars on a global level, but those who have succeeded in clubs and on stages in the local arena are just as recognizable and energetic.

Los Angeles’ own Rhea Litré is one of those celebrities who works tirelessly to extend her brand by keeping a high profile in the culture of drag-pop the world over.

She has just released a new single, a cover of Teena Marie’s 1984 hit “Lovergirl.”

The lively video to the updated dance anthem is directed by Kaine O’Keefe and was filmed in and around Los Angeles, using famous landmarks as backdrops.

Litré is a West Hollywood mainstay whose drag mother is none other than Raja Gemini; season three winner of Ru Paul’s Drag Race.

Being a member of the L.A. cult band Tranzkuntinental, with stars such as William Belli, Kelly Mantle, and Drag Race season five contender Detox, Litré is no stranger to the high-profile eclectic drag scene.

"Ever since I could remember I have wanted to be an entertainer," Rhea says. "I wanted to excite people, make them happy and change the world. I didn't know I was going to be this fierce when I did it, but I consider myself the luckiest person in the world, I'm living my dream.”

The song is available for download on Apple iTunes.
