Big Boi’s “Mama Told Me” originally featured Little Dragon, but due to some label disputes Kelly Rowland replaced the Swedish group on the final version of the song.
Luckily, Big Boi decided to bless the fans with the unreleased version of the track yesterday. While swapping out the featured guest might not seem like a big deal, the song definitely sounds much different with Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon singing the hook. Listen and compare both versions of the song below.

If that wasn’t enough Big Boi and Little Dragon teamed up to perform their song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Big Boi’s sophomore album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors will be released this Tuesday.
