Big Freedia had a fangirl moment while meeting with “very humble” and “sweet” Beyoncé.

The Queen of Bounce, 44, who was previously sampled on Beyoncé’s 2016 song “Formation,” met with Queen Bey during their latest collaboration on the new hit song “Break My Soul.”

Freedia exclusively tells Page Six that she was “grateful,” “humbled” and “excited” when the Grammy winner’s team reached out to hers about using her vocals from her 2014 song “Explode,” but was “blown away” when she heard the final product two weeks ago at Bey’s recording studio in Los Angeles.

“I mean, the speakers were like jumping at me. The bass was coming out of the speakers so heavy. I was in there just like shaking and like excited and overwhelmed,” she recalls.

The New Orleans native says she was “getting ready to leave the studio” when one of Beyoncé’s liaisons approached her and said, “Do you want to talk to the queen? She’s here.”

“I was like, ‘Holy crap. You know I wanna talk to her!'” Freedia tells us, explaining she “went over to her” and that the two “hugged” and “had a conversation.”

“She thanked me for being on her track. And I’m like, ‘No, thank you for having me as a guest on the track!'” she shares, adding that the former Destiny’s Child singer, 40, is “very humble,” “so sweet” and “laidback.”

“She only turns into [her stage persona] ‘Sasha Fierce’ when she hits stage.”

But the surprises didn’t stop there. Freedia says she had no heads up “Break My Soul” would be dropping on June 20 as the debut single on Beyoncé’s forthcoming seventh solo studio album, “Renaissance.”

“I didn’t know that it was coming out. I didn’t know that I was the first single. I found out the same day y’all did,” she explains, saying she learned the news when Beyoncé “announced the name of the song” on her social media platforms a few hours before releasing it.

Though the track — a catchy dance anthem — is drastically different from what the BeyHive is used to, Freedia feels they created “the hottest song of the summer.”

“I mean, this is something that we all need. This is the summer anthem. It is something that will bring us all back together on the dance floor,” she says. “It’s powerful. It’s inspiration. It’s motivation. It’s gonna have people… in clubs dancing. It’s gonna have people in workout rooms dancing. In the gym. I mean, everywhere.”

Beyoncé feels similarly with regard to “Renaissance” as a whole, writing in part to her Instagram followers Thursday, “I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

In addition to chasing her musical dreams, Freedia’s also been prioritizing her academic ones.

She decided to go back to school along with seven other stars — including NeNe Leakes, Ray J, Lamar Odom, Stacey Dash, Slim Thug, India Love and Dreamdoll — for BET+’s original series, “College Hill: Celebrity Edition.”

Freedia tells us she roomed with the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum for the rewarding experience; however, her cameo on Season 12 — the first without Leakes — did not come up in conversation.

Celtics Teammate Reveals Jaylen Brown’s Mindset Amid Trade Rumors

Getty Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics.

This offseason has been dominated by trade rumors. The Boston Celtics have been thrown into the fire as it was leaked that they’ve shown a potential interest in trading for Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant. But in the theoretical trade package, Jaylen Brown would have to be included.

Since those initial reports of Boston’s interest came out, a multitude of different stories have been reported. Just recently, Steve Bulpett of Heavy.com noted that Brown remains committed to the Celtics. But regardless, nothing will be truly known until a Durant deal is completed.

So as Celtics fans lie in wait of a move to occur, there’s nothing they can do but guess. However, Brown’s teammates seem to be confident in Brown’s ability to look past them. During the Jr. Celtics youth camp, Grant Williams spoke with the media and talked about how mature Brown is, as well as revealing that he’s been in contact with the Celtics star.

“Yeah, it’s a significant rumor. It’s something that you do your best to take with a grain of salt. I feel like JB is mature in his mindset, and he knows that. And, I’ve talked to him, texted him, you know, reached out as much as you can. But it’s one of those things, it’s a league, it’s a business,” Williams told reporters. “It’s one of those things you can’t really be discouraged by… I feel like we love JB. Everyone here in Boston, everyone on the team.”

In addition to that, Williams noted that Brown’s value has been shown by his involvement in trade rumors.

Brown’s Value on Display With Trade Rumors

Obviously, Durant is one of the greatest players of all time. Williams explained that Brown having his name mentioned as the potential centerpiece in a deal for Durant just shows how great the Celtics star is.

“It kind of shows how valuable he is. The fact that, top-10 player in the world, you’re the focal point. It’s one of those things, I remember, back in the day with Al Jefferson and KG [Kevin Garnett]. It’s one of those things where you’re like, ‘oh dang, Al Jefferson.’ It’s not even like a difference,” said Williams.

Grant Williams on Conversations w/ Jaylen Brown About Trade Rumors | Jr. Celtics CampBOSTON, MA — Celtics Forward Grant Williams spoke to the media at Jr. Celtics camp on Friday afternoon. Williams spoke about his offseason and how Jaylen Brown has been mature through the Kevin Durant trade rumors.

Boston traded Jefferson for Garnett back in 2007, and the very next season they won the championship. That trade is eerily similar to the one the Celtics have the chance to make now. However, the biggest difference is that back in 2007, Boston was coming off a season where they were the worst team in the East, and this year, they’re coming off a season where they made the NBA Finals.

But as Brown’s name continues to get thrown in rumors, Williams is also confident that the star will approach things with the right mindset.

Brown Will Have ‘Chip on His Shoulder’

Williams mentioned that Brown has an extremely “competitive mindset.” And because of that, these trade rumors could end up having a positive effect on his game.

“I think he’s going to approach it even better. He’s going to take it with a competitive mindset, too. So, if it doesn’t work out, which, I don’t know what it is or not, I’m not involved in none of those processes,” stated Williams. “But I think that he’s going to come back with a chip on his shoulder, and I love that. Because I know how JB responds, and he’s going to be very, very, very, very secure because he’s secure of himself and he’s secure of what he’s going to be.”

So, if the Celtics decide to pass on Durant, expect Brown to be back and better than ever.
