I suspect if I could be bothered to check my Facebook memories at all, I might well see a reminder about me screaming and then sharing the Todrick Hall corona-virus inspired “Mask, Gloves, Soap, Scrubs” (a rework of “Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels“) which was released around this time last year. While I also commenting, I would never tire from watching the video. True. I’m still dazed and dizzy with the completely on-point and witty rework and completely lose my mind at the part when Todrick goes ham with the Febreeze bottle. The track really slapped my funny bone hard. A year on, Todrick is celebrating Pride with the release of his new album “Femuline” while unleashing a camptastic music video in support of “Rainin’ Fellas“, The Weather Girls inspired track found on the album.
Wow, just wow. I love that someone (Jayson Love) left this comment on YouTube about the video. Saying, “You actually managed to make a song that’s gayer than “It’s Raining Men” But it is absolutely true. Hall co-directed and creative directed the visual with Richy Jackson, best known for his work with Lady Gaga, at the helm as choreographer. I felt all of the Lady Gaga vibe, going on in this colourful visual too. There is too much to like about the video that I can’t go out of my way to single out specific bits for praise. My favourite bits are all of it.
I am glad Todrick has rocked up with “Rainin’ Fellas” because it’s ended the week on a very high note. Together with announcing a list as long as my arm of 2022, global tour dates which include two consecutive nights at the world-famous London Palladium, to close the tour. This will be a show to end all shows, I am betting on it. Like unreal. A hoot. A blast.
