This Friday (June 23), Big Freedia will unveil her new LP, Central City, a 16-song effort with contributions from Ciara, Kamaiyah, Kelly Price, Faith Evans, and more. On Monday (June 19), the New Orleans star liberated a new single from the forthcoming release titled “El Niño,” a collaboration alongside Lil Wayne and Boyfriend. As she explained via press release, the track is centered around overcoming adversity.
“El Niño is about going hard in any storms that come in your life and conquering them!” Freedia said. “It’s one of my favorite songs on this record. It features my longtime collaborator Boyfriend and it’s also my first collab with Lil Wayne, who I’ve wanted to work with for a long time. We put it down for our city, and this song is gonna have everyone blowin’ down!”
Central City will follow the 2021 EP Big Diva Energy, which consisted of six cuts and assists from Jake Shears, Anjelika “Jelly” Joseph, Soaky Siren, Tank and The Bangas, Marc Rebillet, and Jax. Since then, she’s appeared on singles like Beyoncé’s “BREAK MY SOUL,” P**sy Riot’s “POOF B**CH,” and Slayyyter’s “Stupid Boy.”
