Big Freedia has been and all-American Queen Diva for the better part of the last decade, but just released her first EP-proper. Perhaps "Let It Go Nah" is what a bounce-pop crossover sounds like, sampler and vododer vocals bent just Benny Blanco enough to score your baby cousins fantasy middle school prom. Maybe Beyonce's "Get Me Bodied" also straddles that sweet middle spot? Want to burn cals, sweat your hurt off and pop your heart open? Freedia's out touring fun clubs and Pride fests. Go get at your dreams in the front, on the floor. Dates below the download!
