Following another season of a hit reality TV series, the release of her memoir and a cameo on Beyonce's latest earth-mover, the Queen Diva is poised to keep her crown in 2016. On her latest single, bounce artist Big Freedia
gives her take on a boast track — "That call and response, I'm your preacher / Turn on your TV, I'm your feature" — over a lower-tempo, pop-influenced bounce. The single teases the release of Freedia's second full-length album, due later this year.
“‘I Heard’ was inspired by all my fans who check for me all over the world,” Freedia told Billboard
, which premiered the single
. “I say, ‘I heard you were lookin’ for me.’"
Freedia's next album follows 2014's full-length debut Just Be Free
, which combined ecstatic bounce with club music and glittery pop production.
