Big Boi and Kelly Rowland Employ Computer Graphics in ‘Mama Told Me’ Video
Subscribe to PopCrush on
Big Boi and Kelly Rowland rap and sing in front of computer-generated backgrounds in the new video for their collaboration ‘Mama Told Me.’ Calling the clip futuristic wouldn’t be accurate, since most of the visuals are low-fi graphics that look like they could’ve been pulled from an old video game.
Rowland sports several different sexy looks in the video, from short shorts to a suit jacket with only a bra underneath, as she sings, “Try not to break too many hearts / That’s what mama told me / I always knew I’d be a star / That’s what mama told me.” Big Boi stands in front of swirly purple and yellow graphics while he delivers his rhymes, which reference Krispy Kreme donuts, Tom Petty and Bobby Brown.
‘Mama Told Me’ is one of more than a dozen collaborations on Big Boi’s latest solo album, ‘Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors,’ which hits stores on Dec. 11.
