Brandy has joined forces with Chance the Rapper on “Baby Mama,” the first single from her upcoming album.
The accompanying music video, which premiered yesterday, captures the snappily dressed singer showcasing some impressive choreography with a troupe of dancers in a huge warehouse.
“Whole world lookin’ at me, single mama / This song ain’t just for me, it’s for every mama, yeah / Every day I breathe, it’s for my little mama / I’m every woman and a baby mama,” she sings over Hit-Boy’s horn-heavy production.
“The inspiration for ‘Baby Mama’ was of course my daughter and how she makes me a better person,” Brandy said of the track in a release. “I wanted to do a song about her and speak to all baby mamas out there that may feel like they can’t make it or they can’t push through, you know, if you use your child as an inspiration you can do anything and I want to everybody to feel that.”
She added, “I have to give Chance the Rapper a huge shoutout, he spit a really, really dope verse on it and I’m so pleased with it.”
Brandy’s forthcoming album, which will follow her 2012 record Two Eleven, is due out later this year.
