Oyster Playlist: Big Freedia
The Queen Diva's top 10 dance floor fillers.
"This stuff turns ass-shaking into some kind of liberating pan-sexual celebration of everyone in the room," Vulture wrote about Big Freedia's live performance. A self-proclaimed 'Queen Diva', Big Freedia is a six-foot tall, high heel-wearing transgender MC who knows how to have fun and get people shaking it like a Polaroid picture. Hailing from New Orleans, Big Freedia is here for the Melbourne Festival and a string of sideshows (complete tour dates below). To get you ready to work it, Big Freedia made us this playlist of the top 10 d-floor fillers. Take it away, Queen Diva...
1. 'Get Me Bodied' — Beyonce
The beat makes you wanna move your body.
2. 'Birthday Cake' — Rihanna
I luv this song because it's always someones birthday at a club, so it'll get people dancing.
3. 'Don't Wake Me Up' — Chris Brown
The beat on this one does the opposite: it wakes you up and gets you movin'.
4. 'Excuse' — Big Freedia
You just get energy — and attitude — with this one.

This is the best song if you're at the club with your friends.

No matter where you are on the globe, this will fill the dance floor!

The groove and vibe of this song is just fun!
8. 'Starships' — Nicki Minaj
I luv this song because it's uplifting and inspiring.
9. 'Yeah' — Usher ft. Ludacris & Lil' Jon
This song is just hype — how can you not get on the dance floor when it comes on?

This is the one you wanna hear at the end of a night at a club…
