Salt Cathedral ft. Big Freedia & Jarina DeMarco – Go and Get It

Whenever Big Freedia’s not on the track, all the other writers should be asking ‘Where’s Big Freedia?’”


[Video]
[5.86]

Will Adams: While this could really benefit from an extended mix that’s just eight minutes of Big Freedia vamping, this is otherwise above-average poolside fodder with the right amount of twee.
[7]

Ian Mathers: The backing is fine, and honestly DeMarco turns in a good lead performance… it just feels unfair, because as is always the case when you invite Big Freedia, it’s hard not to spend the rest of the track going “hmm, could use more Big Freedia”.
[6]

Alfred Soto: Big Freedia rules — we know this. Do the other billed stars?

Crystal Leww: You either quit a hero or continue long enough to hear yourself do Target ad music.

David Moore: I dig the mismatch here, Big Freedia bursting through a backdrop of pretty pastels like it’s a Kool-Aid commercial, but she’s not even the scene-stealer here: Jarina DeMarco’s cameo, which feels like it’s about four seconds long, juts out right when you’re convinced that maybe the Big Freedia verse was spliced in from a customized answering machine message Salt Cathedral won in a contest or something, and the track balances out, just barely.
[7]

Nortey Dowuona: Slumping, thin bass slides along while Freedia’s proud, gleeful shout buoys the the slimmed down track as Jarina’s soft, pillowy voice consumes most of the mix.
[6]

Katherine St Asaph: Salt cathedral: n. what one turns into upon realizing this effervescent dance track with Big Freedia will not become a huge summer jam.

  1. we’ve covered 1 Big Freedia song and 2 Drake songs this year, which is … almost what we had planned

  2. My alternate review: You either quit a hero or continue long enough to hear yourself do Target ad music. [7]
