Kiana Ledé has long been a favorite here at ThisIsRnB and her new single “Mad At Me” is a great reminder of why. The song’s chorus interpolates the hook from OutKast’s mega hit “So Fresh, So Clean.” For most artists, touching such an iconic song would be career suicide, but that’s certainly not the case with Kiana. From start to finish, the track is laced with in your face lyrics backed by the sassy vocal styling that we have come to love from Kiana.
She completely dominates the Rice N Peas production. She kicks off the song with an aggressive, rapper like verse. When the hook finally drops she blends the classic melody with her sweet tone to juxtapose the kiss off nature of the lyrics. The result is one that fans of Outkast would certainly approve. At this point, a remix featuring the iconic ATLiens is a must. Kiana is absolutely right, we can’t be mad at her for bringing the heat this winter.
