The Brief: A clip of A’Keria Chanel Davenport on Ru Paul's Drag Race singing "where is the body" is the punchline in a popular Twitter meme.
A clip from season 11 of Ru Paul’s Drag Race has become a popular Twitter meme. A three-second clip of A’Keria Chanel Davenport’s performance of “Queens Everywhere” shows her dancing and singing “where is the body?” In the full video, she answers the question with “b**ch she’s the body.”
The first iteration of this meme (that we could find) is from this tweet by @f**kpastiche.
The clip went viral after Twitter user @rosesnthxrns posted it along with the caption “me as a murder detective.” Since then, the clip has received over 2 million views on Twitter.

Where Is The Body?
This clip can be the punchline in a variety of jokes, but in many variations of this meme, “the body” is a reference to a corpse.
