Lagoona Bloo Dives Deep in Aqua

Her Debut EP

Lagoona Bloo by Robert Postonik

Lagoona Bloo is best known for being part the critically acclaimed drag pop trio, Stephanie's Child.  The group has appeared on NBC's The Voice and America's Got Talent and Jan Sport and Rosé have both competed on RuPaul’s Drag Race.  Rosé made it to the finals of the most recent season.

Lagoona Bloo has enjoyed reality competition success, too, appearing on Netflix’s baking competition series, Nailed It!, and winning the top prize on her episode.  This week, she is releasing her first solo EP, AQUA. Produced by SIXFOOT 5, Lagoona describes the album as a dreamworld that explores the highs and lows of relationships.  

First single, “Greedy With My Love,” is a dark dance anthem where Lagoona admits that she can be selfish and jealous in a budding relationship.  “Hands,” released last month, is about a broken relationship and her desire for touch.  The EP's final track, “Wings of Love,” will release later this summer, and is about the intense euphoria we feel when falling in love.

She wrote the songs while in quarantine, recovering from Covid. "I began writing about the many frustrations of my life – my failed relationships and issues with self-esteem," she explains.

She didn't realize that she would serendipitously encounter the person who would turn her lyrics into song and become her best friend, just when she needed him most.  "I played the vocals I had recorded on my iPhone for SIXFOOT 5 and he looked at me and said ‘I want to make these songs with you,’ and the rest is history.”

The overall sound of AQUA is radio-friendly pop, reminiscent of Lagoona’s favorite pop divas, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, and Dua Lipa.  Lagoona aims to change the perception of what music from a drag artist sounds like with relatable, mainstream-sounding tracks.

Lagoona Bloo’s AQUA is available on Spotify, Apple Music and all streaming platforms.  Visit her website.  Follow Lagoona Bloo on Instagram.
