Bops Only! Kick Off the Weekend with Five Killer Music Videos From Chicago’s New Star, Erika Jayne
Now there is a fine intersection of Broadway musical fans and fans of Bravo’s game-changing Real Housewives franchises, and, for us, Erika Jayne as Roxie Hart in Chicago is the celebrity casting we’ve been waiting for. Yes, we’ve had both Kandi and Nene as Mama Morton and Nene did Cinderella (and perhaps one day we’ll see the Countess in something), but Erika is next level. A singer, dancer, and actress in her own right, Erika broke out as a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, becoming instantly GIFable.
As a singer and performer, Erika has had nine number-one songs on the Billboard Dance Club Songs charts, and Billboard named her one of the greatest dance club artists of all-time. Below, we take a look at five of our favorite Erika videos in order.
Tell me if Marilyn Monroe were alive today and a Real Housewife, this wouldn’t be it.
How Many F**ks
The catchiest song of hers, and truly a life motto. Entering the new decade like.
Crazy Ft. Maino
This is a video you and your friends put on as you’re putting on makeup or pouring that first pre-game round. It’s not the out-the-door, living-room-dance-party turn up like “XXPEN$IVE” or “How Many F**Ks”, but it’s definitely a moment.
This was just before Erika Jayne become a household name to gay men around America. I believe this is the video Bethenny threw shade at on RHONY/RHOBH cross-over episode but she’s wrong, and this is sexy and stylized.
One Hot Pleasure
This is a true throwback from 10 years ago, but it’s catchy. It makes you want to dance and strut—what more do you need from an Erika Jayne track?
Don’t miss Erika Jayne as Roxie Hart in ‘Chicago’ through March 29 at Broadway’s Ambassador Theatre.
