“She’s unbelievable, she’s so humble. People think that she’s just this diva that’s a certain kind of way, but she is so sweet and so warm,”
Freedia told Billboard on the red carpet at the awards show.
“I love Beyoncé and all that she does and the impact that she has and the inspiration she gives all of us.”
The two previously collaborated on “Formation” on Queen Bey’s last studio album, 2016’s critically acclaimed Lemonade.
Six years later, the duo reunite on Beyonce’s first single “Break My Soul” from her upcoming seventh studio album, Renaissance, which is due July 29.
On “Break My Soul,” Beyoncé samples Freedia’s 2014 track “Explode” from her album Just Be Free, which encourages listeners to “Release ya anger
release ya mind/ Release ya job, release the time/ Release ya trade, release the stress/ Release the love, forget the rest”
Freedia’s signature New Orleans bounce music is sprinkled into Bey’s new ’90s house-influenced track, but the 44-year-old singer
positive that bounce music will have a stronger impact on popular culture — and that Beyoncé isn’t the only superstar utilizing the sound Freedia helped popularize since the ’90s.
“You’ve got people from Meg Thee Stallion to Lizzo to everybody doing bounce right now.
