Big Freedia & Lizzo’s “Karaoke” Video Will Give You Life
If you’re having a bad day, take three and half minutes to watch Big Freedia and Lizzo’s serotonin-raising “Karaoke” video. The highlight of the LGBTQ+ icon’s recent 3rd Ward Bounce EP comes to life as the best pairing since peanut butter and jelly serve looks and twerk on a beach. That is interspersed with footage from an unusually lit bingo game in Freedia’s beloved New Orleans. “Working with Lizzo in LA on this video was a career highlight,” the hitmaker says. “Her energy was exactly what I needed to get this track to come to life!”
If you like what you see and hear, Big Freedia is taking her show on the road with Tank and the Bangas. “[They] are NOLA family and put on a show as lively as a Big Freedia show,” she confirms. “Fans better be ready to shake some azzzzzz!” It’s great to see Freedia finally getting some well-earned recognition in the wake of several notable features including song-stealing cameos on Beyonce’s “Formation” and Drake’s “In My Feelings.” Bringing the divine Lizzo along for the ride is the icing on the cake.
