(New Orleans, LA) Big Freedia has teamed up with New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis to release a hypnotic track, “The Tony,” and music video that celebrates the kick-off of the NBA season next week.
Weaved into the collaboration is a tongue-in-cheek storyline about a robot that was built to help Anthony Davis with his off-the-court chores. The robot – codenamed Tony Bot – unfortunately has a wiring glitch and can’t stop from dancing! When Big Freedia sees the dance, she has to make a song about it:).
The NBA All-Star game was recently moved from Charlotte (to New Orleans) because of the anti-LGBT laws currently in place in North Carolina. This partnership with Davis also shines a light on New Orleans as a progressive city that Big Freedia is proud to represent.
