Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 3.27.57 PMFebruary 8, 2016 (New Orleans, LA) Yes, that is Big Freedia, the Queen of New Orleans Bounce, booming: “I like cornbread and collard greens, b*tch!” on “Formation,” Beyonce´’s new–decidedly socially conscious– track that beautifully pays homage to her southern roots.

“When I got the call from the Queen B,” explains Big Freedia, “I could barely contain my excitement. Beyonce´ is such an inspiration and the video is a masterpiece.”

Big Freedia’s own new single, “I Heard,” will drop February 23. She will also be performing for a very special night at the Brooklyn Bowl with The Soul Rebels on February 25.
