On Nov. 23, Erykah Badu told the podcast Rap Radar how she and her mother felt about OutKast’s 2000 song “Ms. Jackson.”

The smash single, which reached No. 1 in the U.S., is meant to be an apology from OutKast’s Andre 3000 to Badu and her mother, the song’s titular “Ms. Jackson.”

Badu and Andre dated for a period of time in the late ’90s in which they conceived a child, Seven Sirius Benjamin, who is now 19.

“How did my mama feel?” Badu recently asked on the culture podcast Rap Radar.

“It hit kind of a sore spot,” Badu recalled.

“I didn’t wanna hear that, especially when I heard Big Boi’s verse. When I heard Andre’s verse, I felt very good because his verse was really, really inspiring.”

Badu added: “He just said how he felt, and it was his honest feelings. And I always respected that and listened to what he felt and appreciated it.”

Badu and Andre split in 1999 when Seven was a toddler, but they have retained a healthy relationship in order to parent their son.

Badu, who resides in Dallas, has been vocal on Twitter about the strong presence Andre has had in Seven’s life.
