Big Boi f/ Kelly Rowland – “Mama Told Me” (CDQ) | New Music

With Big Boi‘s new album Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumors set for release November 12th the latest taster from the Outkast member’s LP has arrived in the form of “Mama Told Me”.

Originally a collaboration with Little Dragon, the record now sees a change of formation with Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland replacing the Swedish band’s front woman Yukimi Nagano.

While no official word has yet to surface as to why the change in personnel, many believe it to be for commercial reasons.

Regardless, the track itself is a quirky uptempo pop enthused offering that you come to expect from Big Boi. Electronically dominant, the Outkast emcee drops some Slick Rick-esque lyricism in to the mix mentioning the three blind mice; as well as some clever wordplay – “I’m wisdom, like your back teeth.”
