The Nu Shooz-indebted electro-rap gets a matching video.
The video for the vivacious ‘Mama Told Me’ is a Day Glo exploration of 80s-style pop art. Big Boi chills out as he effortlessly lays down his verses, while ex-Destiny’s Child diva Kelly Rowland coos her way through various costume and wig changes. The most bizarre inclusion? A woman in a full-body latex cat suit who serves Big Boi a cool glass Remy Martin cognac.
The single appears on the Outkaster’s recently-detailed Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, due out on December 11. While Yukimi Nagono and Little Dragon were dropped from ‘Mama Told Me’, they will appear elsewhere on the album.
