Known as the larger-than-life ambassador of New Orleans Bounce music, Big Freedia is a nationally recognized hip-hop artist, TV personality and cultural influencer. Most recently she made headline news for her feature on Beyoncé’s Grammy-Award winning single, “Break My Soul,” released in 2022.
In addition to three critically acclaimed EPs, ‘3rd Ward Bounce’ (2018), ‘Louder’ (2020), and ‘Big Diva Energy’ (2021), Big Freedia, known as the Queen of New Orleans Bounce, also appeared on numerous high profile projects, including Beyoncé’s Grammy award-winning, “Formation,” and on Drake’s “Nice For What,” where she brings her distinctive voice and signature catchphrases to all her work. In 2021, she covered “Judas” on Lady Gaga’s Born this Way The Tenth Anniversary album.
This month, just in time for PRIDE, Big Freedia will release her first full length project in seven years, Central City Freestyle featuring Lil’ Wayne, Ciara, Boyfriend and more. “I call my new album Bigga Bounce,” says Freedia, heralding this new chapter for the genre. “I pay homage to my city, my roots, hip-hop, and to the art of creating a new sound.”
