Queen of Bounce Big Freedia Spreads the New Orleans Sound, Pens New Book 'God Save the Queen Diva' and Performs Live on Air

New Orleans. Bounce Music. Big Freedia.

They all go together without second thought, right? For good reason as the trailblazer continues to play somewhat the role of an international ambassador for bounce music. The sounds that the majority in New Orleans love so much and will always be an intricate part of their culture is showing up overseas. Beyond music, there are a lot of great things happening between the new season of ‘Big Freedia‘ coming up and the brand new book ‘God Save the Queen Diva’.

The book covers the above and much more, including the impact Katrina had and how the experience still resonates to this day. It did however fully equip him with an unforgettable sense of overcoming odds as he continues to exceed expectation in several ways.

Luckily we were able to get caught up with Freedia and discuss it all on #SwayintheMorning, check it out below:
