Mama Say

Album: The Valley (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This bouncy track is Betty Who's ode to Britney Spears.

    Look at you now, make me proud
    I'm your slave tonight


    Who told The Independent: "If you listen to the lyrics, half of them are hinting at Britney songs I've always loved. And then of course there's the bridge where I literally feel like I'm walking through the cascading rain of the 2001 Live In Las Vegas HBO special she did wearing a clear cowboy hat with a boa constrictor around my neck."
  • Betty Who wrote the song with Fransisca Hall, whose other credits include "Ooh La La," the tune that Britney Spears recorded for the end credits of The Smurfs 2 movie. It was produced by Who's regular producer, Peter Thomas.
