His single “Live Your Life” is about openness, freedom and tolerance. Baschi wants to express these feelings through his complete transformation into a drag queen.

In the video, singer Baschi (35) turns into a drag queen – including make-up, wig and dress.

That's what it's all about

  • Make-up, gel nails and Wig: Baschi (35) is hardly recognizable in his new music video for the song “Live Your Life”.

  • The Swiss pop singer had himself transformed into a glamorous drag queen for the video shoot in the 20-minute editorial team.

  • In an interview with 20 minutes, the 35-year-old reveals how he did, what he found particularly difficult and how his family reacted to the new look.

For more than three years it was musically quiet around Baschi. Now the Swiss musician is back – and shows himself from a completely new side: In the music video for his new single “Live Your Life”, which will be released on Friday afternoon, the 35-year-old turns into a drag queen. The unique video shoot took place in the editorial office of 20 minutes.

At the beginning of the clip, the singer is sitting at his desk, bored, staring at his screen. Then his coffee cup suddenly turns into a glass of champagne and the musician grows colorful nails, thick eyelashes and blonde hair. “My new song is about openness, freedom and tolerance. By transforming myself into a drag queen, I wanted to express these feelings and show myself from a new, unfamiliar side that people don't yet know about me», says Baschi.

«I feel good like this»

The 35-year-old spent several hours being styled by professional drag queens. «The make-up process was very pleasant. The only thing that was more strenuous was walking in high heels, I'm really not used to that, »jokes the singer. The glued-on gel nails also bothered him and kept falling down.
