The full performance of a song from the first season of “Drag Race Philippines” just reached a million views on YouTube.

The song titled “Pop Off Ate” was used for a challenge in the third episode of the Philippine edition of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” an American drag race franchise.

It was aired in the Philippines via the World of Wonder (WOW) Presents Plus, HBO Go and discovery+Philippines on August 24.

For the challenge, the ten remaining drag queens were divided into two groups, namely, the Flexbomb Girls and the Pink Pu*** Energy.

Flexbomb Girls members won that challenge.

After the episode was aired, videos of their full performances were uploaded via WOW Presents YouTube channel for viewers to stream again.

Recently, several drag queen fans noticed that the Flexbomb Girls’ performance video had already reached one million views in just two months.

As of November 17, the performance video breached the one million-views mark. It has so far garnered 1,024,683 as of writing.

Meanwhile, Bekenemen Pod, a safe and creative space for queer content, posted a screenshot of this achievement on Instagram on November 11.
