WATCH: Mimi Imfurst’s “Who Will I Blow?”
Philly drag queen Mimi Imfurst is on a role. Only three months after her Adele-inspired “Someone to Screw,” she’s back with big bows and even bigger hair in a spoof of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know.” “Who Will I Blow” stars a handful of Philly drag queens — like Navaya Shay and Satine Harlow — and local America’s Next Top Model contestant Cory Wade Hindorff.
Mimi told me that she decided to chose to remake this song, because, “How Will I Know” is one of my favorite Whitney Houston songs of all time. I’ve always just loved it and — shockingly — [it has never been] parodied before. It was a no brainer for me.
She wrote the new version with the help of another local drag diva, the fabulous Cleo Phatra. The video was filmed at Voyeur, where she says she “turned the club into a green-screen studio. I’m very excited that I was able to highlight so many of my Philly friends.”
Check out all the gals and boys below. I added the Whitney version of “How Will I Know” under that for comparison’s sake.
