Big Freedia’s ‘Explode’ Gets Electrifying Remix From Angor Republic

Big Freedia

As the release of her new album approaches Big Freedia, the Queen Diva of New Orleans bounce, wants to make sure your twerk game is on point. Back in April she announced her upcoming album, Just Be Free with “Explode,” a frenetic bounce track that rallied the queen’s loyal followers to “release your wiggle.” While Freedia previously stated that the tracks on Just Be Free “were ones you could listen to at a late night twerk party or an afternoon BBQ,” the first official remix for “Explode” demands you dance. Taken to new (or at least different) heights by upstart bay area EDM duo Angor Republic, the remix turns Freedia’s rallying cry into a scream, trading quick beat, vertical pulse of the original into a crystalline acid-trap banger. Listen to the remix below and get ready to start twerking when Just Be Free drops on June 17 via Queen Diva Music.
