Big Freedia Brings a Stadium-Sized Bounce Anthem With "Turn Da Beat Up"

Big Freedia Brings a Stadium-Sized Bounce Anthem With "Turn Da Beat Up"

Are you ready to Just Be FreeBig Freedia's debut full-length is out next week and from the album opener "Turn Da Beat Up," it's clear that this is a party record that anyone can get down to.

Energetic snares, ominous synths and arena cheers back Freedia's signature shout-singing. At first, it sounds like the type of record we could imagine hearing on a Major Lazer album. But the lyrics are pure Freedia: "Head down! Ass up! ...Shake it to the left, shake it to the right / Shake it to east, shake it all night!"
