Big Boi – “Mama Told Me” F. Kelly Rowland [Video]

Big Boi – “Mama Told Me” F. Kelly Rowland [Video]

Stop right there! Before you watch this video, head over to this post and read how awesome the features are going to be on Big Boi’s upcoming album. Next, mute the YouTube player below and turn on some vintage Outkast. To move things forward, how about “Rosa Parks”? Okay, now that that is settled, press play on the video and let things roll. Yes, Kelly Rowland, even with the volume off, is just awful. She has no soul, and it is evident with each and every movement of her robotic mouth.

Now, this might seem harsh, but “Mama Told Me” is probably the worst song that Big Boi has ever dropped. The video, though, makes up for everything. Seriously, looks how wonderfully all those tacky designs and colors work together. It looks like Def Jam knew they had a real stinker on their hands, and decided to equip it with equally as disgusting visuals. Let’s just write this one off as the pop single on what looks like a pretty promising LP otherwise.

    Did they ever release the version with Little Dragon, or is it just the live version?

    Yeah, I mean, when you feature a guest vocalist as much as Big Boi did on this track, it better be a damn good singer. She keeps singing the same stupid hook over and over.

    damn it’s amazing how a song goes from being thoroughly praised when it features certain guest artists (little dragon) to thoroughly ridiculed when that same song features a different guest artist (Rowland). BUT…that’s how important guest features are I suppose.
