"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 11 winner, Miss Yvie Oddly, has released her new single "Drag Trap." The song comes off Yvie's debut album, "Drag Trap," due out October 23, 2020.

"I'm going to call the album 'Drag Trap' after the house that I've spent the last five years in, where I grew into the queen I am," says Oddly. "A lot of people were overwhelmed by how chaotic and messy it was, but it always helped me — literally — be in a space where I could make beautiful things and strive for bigger. So, much like a trap house, except we were selling drags instead of drugs."

Oddly, a drag queen performer, rapper, and fine artist from Denver, Colorado, captured the attention of the world when she won the eleventh season of "RuPaul's Drag Race." New York Magazine named Oddly one of the most powerful drag queens in June 2019 because of her ability to push the boundaries of drag performance art. Oddly's creative, outrageous and unconventional looks, which range from gorgeous fashion model to terrifying alien creature, combined with her signature loud cackle, make her instantly recognizable.

"I think why I was really hoping to win — and what I'm hoping my win really stands for — is a win for putting humanity back in drag," told Oddly in a MTV interview after her season win. "For reminding people that as nice as it would be if queens could come onto the show with, like, millions of dollars worth of designer pieces and all the connections and all the polish ... the drag queens who are actually out there working to evolve [this art form] are the people who are on the streets, who can't afford all of the nice things.
