Big Boi and Swedish electro-indie pop outfit Little Dragon only met a couple years back, but in that short time the two have created beautiful cross-genre harmony. Little Dragon appear on two tracks (“Thom Pettie” and “Descending”) off Big Boi’s upcoming sophomore LP, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, but they united to perform Big Boi’s lead single off the album, “Mama Told Me,” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Friday night.
The album version of “Mama Told Me” features Kelly Rowland, but Little Dragon were actually on the original version of the track, produced by The Flush. Check out Big Boi get down with Little Dragon and spin the original and album versions of the track below. Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors drops on Dec. 11. (And, if you’re new to Little Dragon, we suggest you pick up any one of their albums. All great. You won’t be disappointed.)
