Music Video Of The Day: RuPaul Feat. Big Freedia 'Peanut Butter'

By Lisa White in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 10, 2014 10:10PM

Big Freedia has become such a live concert staple in Chicago over the past few years, we feel like she should adopt us as a second home. Not that we mind one bit, since a Big Freedia show is a sure bet for a good workout. If you aren't shaking it, you aren't having a good time.

We're longtime fans of Freedia and her infections brand of Bounce music, so kicking off the weekend working up a sweat sounds like the perfect Friday night plans. Catch Big Freedia at Concord Music Hall tonight, you can grab a ticket here. Local DJ collective Porn and Chicken will also be there. Check out our interview with Phives earlier this month.

For now enjoy one of our favorite tracks Freedia has performed on below, the super catchy "Peanut Butter" from RuPaul. The video is pretty NSFW (A LOT of body parts are bouncing around in this video. A LOT.), so maybe don't let your hair down and dance around to it during your office's happy hour this evening. Although we think that would be pretty awesome, your employer may not agree. Either way, make sure to crank it up before you head to the Big Freedia show tonight.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact us at
