Directed by Derek Blanks with creative direction by Frank Gatson, the Grammy Award-winning songstress dons fly threads and fresh cornrows as she hits every move in a plaid suit while singing about being the strong, confident and proud single mother that she is.
“The inspiration for Baby Mama was, of course, my daughter and how she makes me a better person,” she writes in the caption of the visual posted on YouTube. “I wanted to do a song about her and speak to all baby mama’s 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 went on to give “a huge shoutout” to Chance The Rapper. “He spit a really really dope verse on it and I’m so pleased with it.”
Earlier this week, Brandy chatted with ABC’s Good Morning America and chatted about her Mother’s Day plans before unveiling the album cover for her seventh studio album B7.
“I think I’m gonna just cook and just spend some time with my mom and my daughter. We’re all together quarantined so we’re looking forward to that day so we can love on each other some more.”
The album is slated for July 31 as the release date. You can pre-order her album digitally and in vinyl form on Amazon Music.
