When Guy Sebastian unveiled the cover of new single “Mama Ain’t Proud” earlier this week, I speculated that the Australian superstar might be returning to his R&B roots given the 2 Chainz feature and quirky video call sheet. A preview of the catchy club banger confirms that suspicion. There’s even a trap twist to underline the fact that the 32-year-old is leaving EDM behind!

“Drop crotch, snapback, black leather backpack, white shirt down to my knees,” sings the “Battle Scars” hitmaker. “They can judge our shoes but not our moves, we ain’t go no one to please.” From there, Guy rides a wave of staccato beats until he reaches catchy chorus (“so sing like no one’s around and dance like ya mama ain’t proud”) before things get really mental with a massive drop. Check it out after the jump.
