New Video: Big Boi & Kelly Rowland – ‘Mama Told Me’

Published: Wednesday 21st Nov 2012 by Sam

Big Boi embraces his quirky OutKast foundation in the video for new single ‘Mama Told Me’. The clip, which features ‘Ice’ singer Kelly Rowland, is the latest to be lifted from the rapper’s new album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors’ (due December 11th).

A visual homage to 80’s Electro-Funk, watch the Syndrome directed video below…

While visually delicious, the clip’s performances left a lot to be desired. Like, what was the actual treatment beyond the nostalgia? Proper choreography wouldn’t have gone amiss either.

Still, kudos to Kelly for staying on her grind.

    Hmmm, ok. I think when we look back over Kelly’s career we’ll see how much she actually put her face out there and tried many different things that were honestly quite good. As of now, Kelly still hasn’t found her voice except maybe in Dance music. Is she an RnB singer, hook singer, belter, balladier? We just don’t know. She isn’t really KNOWN for anything except for doing some of everything rather than a few things (Janet – great songs/entertainer, Ciara – dancing, Beyonce – great staging/performing, Whitney – stage presence/voice) really well. Hopefully with the advent of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis appearing on her new album we’ll have an iconic period of classiness (sans “Ice”) in a few months time.

    This was alright. The effects and retro filters were nice but yes some dancing would have been a treat.
