With the Season 2 premiere of Big Freedia's Fuse reality show Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce nearly upon us—and her official debut album Just Be Free dropping in less than a week—we couldn't be more excited to exclusively premiere the Queen Diva's music video for her latest single, "Explode."
"Explode" is aptly named, because the song will blow your eardrums and the video shows dancers erupting into astounding moves in front of your eyes. The clip finds her dancers shaking ass in the laundromat and on the streets while Freedia flaunts a dapper 'do and some incredible outfits, including a Beetlejuice-esque suit.
But before the clip, well, explodes, Freedia narrates the following monologue about what this song means and how it represents her place in the world. "My music, it makes me feel good about what I do and the culture I represent," she says. "People get confused by if I am 'he' or 'she.' I am more than just Big Freedia. I am more than just Queen Diva. I am more than just Freddie Ross. I am me. I am the ambassador representing for New Orleans and bounce music. So many things in my head sometimes, it just all makes me want to explode." Cue the music.
Watch the incendiary clip above.
