"WorkOut" is the second single from RuPaul's album Red Hot. The song is a dance/house song about feeling liberated while dancing. The expression "work out" is (not exclusively) gay slang for expressing one's self exuberantly; it is similar to RuPaul's coined phrase "You better work!". Two versions of the single were made available; one version, with 8 tracks, was released by RuPaul on her own RuCo, Inc. label. The other version, a 3 track version released only in Germany, was released on the Dance Street label.

Music video

The music video was catered to club play and features a montage of RuPaul in different outfits singing the song in locations such as a roof top and a dance club.
