“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels is releasing a new dance banger ahead of the Season 5 premiere and is already fighting with trolls.
The reality star dropped a teaser for her song “Drag Queens Don’t Play” which she wrote under her stage name Hazel. She wrote to her fans, “DRAG QUEENS DON’T PLAY! Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 16 as @enews exclusively debuts my full song and lyric video entitled “Drag Queens”!!!! Available on all streaming platforms this Friday July 17!.”
In the song, Monique raps, “I was born ready, but I’m never done. Try on ten just to find the right one. Melanin pop bright like the sun-kissed and you wish to compare hun. Be careful what you wish don’t you dare hun. Tried to warn you see the message wasn’t clear hun. I am a woman of my word.”
Some fans have issues with Monique writing a song titled Drag Queens. One wrote, “No really I’ve had enough of cis gender woman making money off the back of the LGBTQ community. This isn’t your fight to sing about, nor should you make money off the back of our struggles. Sing about your parrot, or your kids, or being dragged, but leave the LGBTQ community to sing about their own community. Gaga, Ariana, Katy and now Monique. ENOUGH!”
Monique quickly fired back at the criticism writing, “thank you! Exactly the point. And my sis and bro are both LGBTQ. I would never try to profit off of other communities. I can’t stand when it’s done to the black community. This was a fun song that turned a negative into a positive. Whether the song sells or not is far from the reason I created it.”
On the last season of “Real Housewives of Potomac”, Monique and costar Candiace Dillard frequently bumped heads and argued about their friendship. In the teaser for the new season of “RHOP”, Monique and Candiace’s tension ended with them getting into a massive brawl during filming.
The two were facing second-degree assault charges over the incident and were facing jail time. The Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office made the decision to drop all charges against the two and the case was closed.
