Big Freedia taps Flo Milli for festive single “Better Be”

Ahead of Freedia’s ‘Smokin’ Santa Christmas’ EP.

New Orleans bounce legend Big Freedia and Flo Milli have teamed up on a festive new single called “Better Be.”

The infectious track arrived ahead of Freedia’s Smokin’ Santa Christmas EP, due this Friday. Milli does not appear in the clip, in which Freedia dances with dancers dressed as reindeer, elves and sexy Santas at the New Orleans Joy Theater.

“This track is about putting 2020 behind us,” Freedia said in a statement. “Next year better be big, new, and Red Bottom shoes! … My only regret is that we couldn’t get Flo Milli in the video. It all happened so fast that I had to dig up my own holiday decorations for the video set.”


This year, the bounce icon released her Louder EP, which featured Kesha, Icona Pop, The Soul Rebels and lil aaron. Milli, on the other hand, unleashed her debut project Ho, Why is You Here? this July. It featured tracks “Send the Addy,” “May I,” “Like That Bitch,” “Not Friendly” and her breakout track “Beef FloMix.”
