The Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia, brings her booty-popping beats to Orlando this weekend, performing a sold-out show at Will’s Pub with Delish Da Goddess and Luscious Lisa.
“I want to see what they bringing,” she says. “Wear something comfortable and loose so y’all can shake them asses. We gotta shake the house down.”
In addition, there’s a banging’ new single, “Rent,” out TOMORROW, which we will be premiering on the WOW Report! Stay tuned! Meanwhile, Freedia talks about her upcoming album and the pulse-pounding power of the booty to Orlando Weekly:
You have a new album coming out soon?
It’s called Third Ward Bounce, and it’s coming out sometime in June. I feel really blessed to be able to work with so many great people. I’m listening to different sounds to incorporate – I’m doing one song that has a whole gospel bounce feel, another one with a kind of bounce trap feel. I’m still the Queen of Bounce, but I want to step into new directions and keep pushing it even further.
You’ve talked about the “power of the ass” as a type of freedom …
Well, you know the ass has power – if it’s dancing or whatever it is. I am able to express myself through the power of ass. I’m very expressive through my ass. This is how I make my living, so I’m using my ass a lot in a good way.
Also, I give people the freedom to express themselves, to be able to twerk and pop and dance without being judged. At my shows, it’s a safe, free zone where you can express yourself no matter who you are – black, white, straight or gay. You can have a good time and not be judged.
