While they did indeed hit the studio together to create “Mama Told Me” as well as performed it alongside one another in Austin, the anticipated collaboration between Little Dragon and Big Boi will unfortunately not appear on the OutKast member’s forthcoming album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. On the business end, mutual terms could not be reached in time, and therefore the track now features assistance from Kelly Rowland. To see a statement on the mishap, simply view below:
It is true that Little Dragon made the “Mama Told Me” track with Big Boi and even performed it live in Austin for The Fader. The whole collaboration was an amazing creative experience. Unfortunately, business terms out of our control got in the way, and an agreement couldn’t be reached in time for our version of the track to be released. At least new friendships were made, and we want to wish Big Boi good luck with the album. We look forward to collaborating with him in the future.
