Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter and Tony Award-winning performer, Idina Menzel, released her highly anticipated dance project Drama Queen via BMG.
The electrifying album showcases her powerhouse vocals through soaring anthems, disco-infused beats, and just the right amount of drama. Menzel worked alongside global hitmakers Nile Rodgers, Jake Shears, Justin Tranter, Sir Nolan, Simon Wilcox, Laura Veltz, Jim Eliot, Maty Noyes, Mitch Allan, Lindy Robbins, Chantry Johnson, Michelle Zarlenga and more to create a body of work that is a departure from what she’s put out in the past. Harnessing the same unforgettable presence both on the stage and the big screen, Drama Queen is the latest project in which Menzel employs her greatest superpower.
“Paradise (featuring Nile Rodgers),” which was released earlier this week, was produced by Nile Rodgers, who co-wrote with Idina and Jonas Myrin. Idina had this to say about the track, “We had been listening to Nile’s ‘Good times’ – living and feeling it. We just started vibing on a melody and the lyric and this idea that, even though we may all be locked in our homes right now, you can always find your disco ball wherever it may be. There was a longing to be back together singing and dancing our hearts out.” said Menzel.
