Everyone knows that Laganja Estranja can get those “Legs over head like a pretzel,” but that line recently gained some national notoriety in its category. Pitchfork magazine, with over 1.5 million unique monthly visitors on average, prides themselves on being, “The Most Trusted Voice in Music.” This trusted voice recently ranked Estranja’s “Legs” in the number three spot on their list of “The Best and Worst Music of RuPaul’s Drag Divas.”
“Forget Gaga’s "GUY"—this is a true anthem from a pro: "You like the way I bend, flex/ Toes in the air, you like my reflex, reflex." If you’ve ever had your "legs over head like a pretzel" and found yourself thinking "God, I have a gift," this is the tune you’ve been waiting for.
Atop Robyn-smooth beats, LaGanja carries the chorus’ paean to flexibility by herself. While Rye Rye’s mid-song verse may be the centerpiece, she never overshadows LaGanja but rather opens up the rest of the track for her full-force sass. "Ankles at 180, baby/ This my circus/ You my favorite trick," her final verse boasts. This is the power-bottom anthem death-dropped: LaGanja’s dipped down to the floor in her bratty, tantalizing rap, and by the song’s end you’re on the floor with her.
Come through, pretzels of the world—let’s get listening!”
Estranja’s “Legs” is ranked above both Adore Delano’s “DTF” and Miss Fame’s “Rubber Doll.”
