Big Boi taps up Kelly Rowland for the sprightly 'Mama Told Me'

Big Boi’s latest single from the forthcoming Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors features an appearance from Destiny’s Child diva Kelly Rowland.  

‘Mama Told Me’ initially emerged a couple of months ago as a collaborative exercise between Big Boi and Little Dragon. Rowland – for commercial reasons, we presume – has been parachuted in, and it’s something of a shame: Yukimi Nagano’s voice arguably worked much better in this twinkly, perky context.

Personnel difficulties aside, ‘Mama Told Me’ is a fun and infectious cut. It’s a sleek throwback number – Nu Shooz given some modern polish and the occasional 8-bit flourish. The track, ripped from Funkmaster Flex’s radio shows, is available to listen to below. [via Hypetrak]
