Gaining world wide fame as a cast member on Season 5 of the reality television cult phenomena RuPaul's Drag Race, Honey Mahogany continues to grow as an artist and performer. Her most recent work is her debut EP: Honey Love. The EP is a collection of songs written and produced by Honey Mahogany in collaboration with Erik Ian Walker of WakoWorld Music. Honey Love gained national attention in the U.S. when a song from the EP "Shoulda Known Better" aired on episode 4 of the much anticipated HBO series Looking. Honey makes an appearance on the episode to perform the song.
Honey Love has spawned 2 music videos. One for Honey's critically acclaimed cover of "Feeling Good," and another for "Shoulda Known Better" (both videos were produced by Frederic Grasset & Dallas Haynes IV of Unit 13 Productions). Honey also has a video for her first original single "It's Honey." "It's Honey" does not appear on the EP, however, plans are in the works for a remix album which will include the track as well as new material.
