José covers 'Somebody to Love' by QUEEN. Watch in 4K!

“The gay singer debunks conversion therapy and busts out of the closet in his new music video.” -The Advocate

“He’s covered Queen’s “Somebody to Love” in a new music video, reimagining it as an anthem for the LGBT community. The hilarious but poignant clip sees Rivera fighting his family’s attempts at “converting” him to heterosexuality.” -Logo NewNowNext

“Freddie Mercury is one of the most loved gay performers of the 20th Century, but now one of his most famous songs has been given an LGBT+ makeover. José Rivera Jr has reimagined Somebody To Love with a new visual, transforming it into a rousing queer anthem.” -Gay Times UK

“... the accompanying video certainly sticks a middle finger at the intolerance perpetuated by the administration. In the clip, Rivera plays a youth undergoing "conversion" therapy, but don't worry, it's more hilarious than heavy.” -The Advocate

“Fantastic and highly entertaining new music video from José Rivera Jr.” -Accidental Bear

“LGBTQ artist Jose Rivera Jr. has put forth a visual cover of Queen’s iconic “Somebody To Love” as a message of solidarity and resistance in the Trump era.” -Towleroad

“Latinx musician and dancer José Rivera Jr. reclaimed Queen’s “Somebody to Love” as a queer resistance anthem. In the humorous video, he and a group of LGBT individuals break out of the gay conversion therapy program their families sent them to.” -Georgia Voice
