Big Boi – “Mama Told Me” (Feat. Kelly Rowland)
Next month, OutKast rapper Big Boi releases his new solo album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors, and we’ve already heard his songs “Gossip” and “She Said OK.” Last week, he and the Swedish band Little Dragon debuted another new one called “Mama Told Me” live. Last night, Funkmaster Flex debuted that track’s studio version, and it’s got former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland in place of Little Dragon — which, given the type of song it is, is not a downgrade at all. The track is a slippery piece of ’80s funk pastiche, exactly the sort of song that Big Boi always sounds completely at home on. Listen to a radio rip of it, replete with Flex bombs, below.
Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors is out 11/13 on Def Jam.
