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!"

"Turn Da Beat Up" is one of 10 frenetic bounce tracks off of Just Be Free, the debut LP from the queen diva herself. Read our track-by-track review of the record here and take a listen to the whole thing now via USA Today.

Watch Freedia as she's recording, promoting and doing so much more to spread bounce music on Season 2 of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce this Wednesday, June 11 at 11/10c! Find Fuse in your area with our Channel Finder.
