Big Freedia Goes EDM on "Explode" Dance Remix

In April, Big Freedia premiered "Explode," a frenetic banger just begging for a sick remix. 

The first official rework comes via Bay Area EDM duo Angor Republic who take the Queen of Bounce star's signature New Orleans sound and prime it for an Ibiza dance club. Freedia's rallying cries are backed by epic synthesizers and a bachata-inspired dance beat that will make you want to fist pump and twerk it out.

"Explode" is the lead single off the GLAAD Award winner's debut full-length album Just Be Free. In an exclusive first listen to the record, Freedia told us that while the album is strictly a solo record, she's looking to enlist superstar guests for accompanying remixes. In Season 1 of Fuse's Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, we watched the singer/rapper hanging out with Diplo in the studio. She also teased a Missy Elliott collaboration.
