In August, Big Boi debuted the Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors single “Mama Told Me” during a performance alongside Little Dragon. For the official album version, he’s traded in the Swedes for ex-Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland, who adds her own distinct soul and glamour to Big Boi’s monotone wordplay (“Wisdom, like your back teeth/Get the f*ck on, like some bad cheese”) and the ’80s-inspired R&B synth groove.

Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors hits stores on November 13th via Purple Ribbon/Def Jam. In case you missed them, be sure to stream the previous album tracks: the Theophilus London-aided “She Said OK” and “Gossip” featuring UGK and Big K.R.I.T.
