The Bounce Queen Big Freedia sat down with Wendy Williams and opened up about not appearing in Beyonce’s “Formation” video, and coming out to her mother.
During an episode of Wendy Williams’ “Backseat Heat” the New Orleans native spilled all the details about how her voice was added to Queen Bey’s hit song “Formation” back in 2016. “I’m not worried about being in no video,” she told Wendy Williams the new segment. “But they did call about doing the video, but I was on tour and it was shot in New Orleans.” “So I missed it,” she added.
She then explained how the phone call led to the collaboration. “My publicist called and said, ‘Beyoncé wants to talk to you,'” she told Williams in the exclusive sneak peek. She said she responded saying, “Why you didn’t just give her my number?!’ She called and she said she had something that she wanted me to do — a project. The project happened to be ‘Formation,’ They sent me probably a three-second snippet of the song for me to come up with a line. So what I did is take the three-second snippet and looped it over and over and over, did the lines, and we sent it back.”
Freedia also mentioned how she came out to her mom at her 12th birthday party. “When I told her, she said, ‘Mama already know, baby,'” she recalled. “That was my backbone, baby. She was my protector. She taught me class and to be who I am and not be afraid. She was my rock.”
