People reported, “When her new cabaret show F, Marry, Kill kicks off in January, the Real Housewives of New York City star will be debuting a fresh single — a smooth latin-inspired track called “Viva La Diva.”
While backstage at New Jersey’s Borgata, Lu boasted, “It’s an amazing song. It’s totally different from anything I’ve done before, but still very much me. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
Lu is collaborating with musician Desmond Child, who has worked with the artists Kelly Clarkson, Cher, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Weezer, Robbie Williams, Hanson and Bonnie Tyler. Notably, Desmond wrote the songs The Cup of Life and Livin’ la Vida Loca for Ricky Martin, Dude (Looks Like a Lady) and Crazy for Aerosmith, and You Give Love a Bad Name by Bon Jovi.
“I was introduced to Desmond when we were both at SiriusXM one day and we completely hit it off,” Lu explained. “We started talking and realized we had mutual friends. And I told him it’d be great to start working on a song together, and he said, ‘Love it! When?’ So we didn’t waste time putting it together.”
The ‘Countess’ started her music career on RHONY’s third season with the bop Money Can’t Buy You Class. The song quickly became a catch phrase for Lu, inspiring 2011’s follow-up single, Chic C’est La Vie. Luann’s infamous story lines and catch phrases from Bravo’s hit show inspired her songs Girl Code (Don’t Be So Uncool) and Feeling Jovani.
