Chicago trans rapper Lila Star (most known for her guest vocals on Shea Coulee's 2017 single "Cocky") has released the music video for her latest single, "Sex Appeal," which may strike some as a tribute to famed hip-hop artist Lil Kim.

The video for the sex-positive song is directed by longtime collaborator Nestor, of Nestor's Photography, and features Star in a variety of risque scenes.

The single is Star's first single since 2018's "Ni Santa Ni Diabla," by Lester Rey featuring guest vocals from Star. It's also her first solo single since the house single "Feeling Like C*nt," released in 2017. A comeback single, "Hourglass Body (Runway Walk)," was announced but never materialized.

"Sex Appeal" can be seen on Star's YouTube channel at youtu.be/3Y3E2MZCl_g. The single is now available at digital retailers and streaming platforms.
