What’s Big Boi doing on a track with YouTube viral sensation Epic Meal Time? After watching the A-town mainstay’s latest music video, I still have no f**king idea. Unusual as Apple of My Eye might be in concept, though, it’s tough to argue with the execution. Mr. DJ‘s compulsively booty-shaking electro-funk production, complete with live brass, sets the mood as Antwan André Patton discourses on human sexuality in a characteristically agile, twisty flow. NYC singer/producer Jake Troth lends his vocals to the record’s hook, and Trevor Kane directs the official visuals, complete with a newly-added introductory skit co-starring Canadian gourmand Harley Morenstein. For Apple of My Eye, previously-featured singles, Gossip, She Said OK and Mama Told Me and much more, cop Big Boi’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors LP, out now via Def Jam.
