Dillon Francis Taps Big Freedia and TV Noise for New Track ‘Bawdy’
Following the release of his contagious recent single “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It),” platinum-selling artist, DJ and producer Dillon Francis has linked with New Orleans bounce queen Big Freedia and Dutch DJ-producer duo TV Noise for new bounce-heavy heater “Bawdy” — the latest offering from Dillon Francis’ hotly anticipated forthcoming mixtape Magic Is Real, due out in full on November 15th via Dillon Francis’ own IDGAFOS imprint and Mad Decent.
Magic Is Real, Pt. 1 will be released October 2nd and features 4 of the mixtape’s 8 tracks, including lead single “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It),” whose hilarious, equally addictive music video starring Broad City’s John Gemberling (along with an endless supply of Dillon Francis cameos) has taken social media by storm. Other tracks on Magic Is Real, Pt. 1 include “Bomboclat (Light It Up)” featuring Trinidadian ragga soca artist Bunji Garlin, the hotly anticipated follow up to Dillon’s 2014 fan favorite “Not Butter” titled “Still NotButter,” and latest offering “Bawdy,” featuring New Orleans bounce legend Big Freedia and Netherlands DJ/producer duo TV Noise.

Magic Is Real follows Dillon Francis’ monumental 2018 that saw the release of his second album WUT WUT, a Spanish-language album that marked the return of Francis to his Moombahton roots, featuring some of the biggest names in Latin music including De La Ghetto, Arcangel, Fuego, Residente, and many more. The album went on to earn Francis a Latin American Music Award nomination and Latin GRAMMY nomination for the song “Sexo” with Puerto Rican superstars Residente and iLe. “White Boi” (feat. Lao Ra) was met with much excitement and immediately debuted in the Top 40 at Mexico’s Spanish Pop radio upon its release.
Dillon Francis has achieved a string of smashes, including the #1 Dance Radio Airplay hit “Anywhere” [feat. Will Heard], “Candy” [feat. Snappy Jit], #1 Billboard Dance Club Songs chart-topper “Coming Over” with Kygo [feat. James Hersey], and the RIAA platinum-certified “Get Low” with DJ Snake — which surpassed 500 million worldwide streams. Francis initially made history in 2012 as “the first moombahton artist to achieve the number-one spot on Beatport” with the Something, Something Awesome EP. In 2014, his major label debut album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule [Mad Decent/Columbia Records], landed on Rolling Stone’s “Top Electronic Albums of 2014” list and boasted a myriad of diverse collaborators such as Twista, Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco, Major Lazer, and more.
His 2015 follow-up This Mixtape Is Fire EP bowed at #1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. Following WUT WUT, in early 2019 Francis hit the road on a co-headlining tour alongside Alison Wonderland with sold out shows across the US, a massive performance at Coachella 2019, where he first treated fans to a sneak preview of music from Magic Is Real, and has since been nonstop performing Vegas in his fourth consecutive year of his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas.
In addition to his music, Dillon Francis also recently released a 7-episode comedy series ‘Like and Subscribe’ available exclusively on Funny or Die and Amazon Video. The show follows Skyy Goldwynne (Dillon Francis), Hollywood’s biggest manager who locks 4 of his influencer clients in a house with a camera crew.
Francis consistently engages a social media following of over 2 million on Instagram, 1.5 million on Facebook, and over 1 million on Twitter with a string of hilarious content. Moreover, his music has lit up Furious 7, Entourage, Neighbors, Zoolander 2, and more. For tour dates, love letters and more information visit www.dillonfrancis.com.
