"Ms. Jackson" is a number-one hit song by OutKast, from their 2000 fourth album Stankonia. It topped the U.S. charts for the week of February 17, 2001, and won a 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. It was just as successful internationally, reaching number one in Germany and number two in the United Kingdom, held from the top by Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again".
The titular "Ms. Jackson" is the real-life mother of Erykah Badu. Erykah is André 3000's ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son Seven. The song discusses the problems break-ups, separation, and divorce can bring on the former couple, and the animosity a woman's mother can have for her daughter's former boyfriend or husband.
