FUSE TV - Exclusive: Big Freedia Describes Working With Beyoncé on "Formation"

Beyoncé's brand new song "Formation," released on Saturday in video and free download/stream form on Tidal, features the one and only Big Freedia. The star of Fuse's Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce exclusively told Fuse.tv about the experience of working with Bey:

"It was a total shocker when I got a call from Beyonce’s publicist and she said Beyoncé wanted me to get on this track. When I heard the track and the concept behind it, which was Beyoncé paying homage to her roots (New Iberia, La.), I was even more excited! It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I was beyond honored to work with the original Queen B. I think it turned out amazing too!"
