Just in Time for Halloween – Adam Barta Pairs with RuPaul’s Drag Race Star Rebecca Glasscock for “Fairytale” Music Video

My friend Adam Barta is making dance music again!!! Here is the official press release: 
NYC, NY, October 29, 2013 – Adam Barta has had a very successful year in comedy – havnig multiple appearances on theHoward Stern show and releasing viral music videos and songs with “Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil, Jonah Falcon, Angelina Pivarnick (“Jersey Shore”), Sydney Leathersand RuPaul’s Drag Race All StarPandora Boxx. However, he is putting the comedy aside – sort of – to return to his dance music roots with a powerful new single and music video, “Superficial”. The song marks his first solo dance music song since his 2010 Top 20 Billboard hit, “Give Yourself Up”, with Kathy Sledge, which was recently featured in the Don Jon movie soundtrack.  
And of course, there is a music video to go along with it which Adam hopes will go viral. It features him in a fairytale setting with none other than RuPaul’s Drag Race season one star, Rebecca Glasscock – as a wicked queen! In a reverse take on “Snow White”, Adam is drawn through the looking glass into a forest of nymphs – mainly scantily clad sexy guys and girls – dancing around while Glasscock looks on. After eating her poison apple, he is awakened by true love’s kiss – but the ending will leave you scratching your head for sure.
Also featured in the video is the reigning “Ms. New York America”, Michele Herger.
Adam’s last pairing with Drag Race star Pandora Boxx for a duet parody of the George Michael and Aretha Franklin song “I Knew You Were Waiting for Me” as “You Seemed Shady to Me”, proved fruitful – the song cracked the top 50 on the iTunes comedy chart.
While many now know him for his comedic antics such as running along the beach with Tan Mom and staging a gay wedding with Angelina in Times Square, Adam has had success with dance pop music before, aside from his Top 20 Billboard dance hit. He had the “#1 Ultimate Sexiest Music Video” on Logo’s “Click List Countdown” with “Standing in the Rain”, his music featured on shows like “Real World” and “Bad Girls Club” and been on the playlist of stores across the country like Abercrombie & Fitch and Victoria’s Secret.
“I really hope this will connect all the fans I have made on the comedy end – which I love – with those who know me for my fun and more ‘serious’ – and I use that word lightly – pop music.”, Adam said. “It’s funny how I get recognized more for Howard Stern now than for some of my songs which landed me on the charts, and I’m not complaining. I want to leverage it all to really give people the full picture of who I am as an artist, and I think this song will start taking me to that place. This is only the beginning”.
Who will Adam duet with next? Time will only tell. But he is on a trajectory that is unique and as Howard Stern said is carving a “niche” for himself that none have done before.
Superficial” was written by Charlie Mason, who cowrote the single “Fail“, which hit #1 on iTunes in Sweden. It was also produced and co-written by Richard Hymas and Rob Curti. The music video was directed by Syuji Honda for Pure Soul Productions, which also did Adam’s “Q&A” music video in 2012 featuring comedian Lisa Lampanelli.
