"Ms. Jackson" is a song by American alternative hip hop duo OutKast. It was released on October 17, 2000, as the second single from OutKast’s fourth album, Stankonia. It topped the US chart for 1 week on February 17, 2001, and also reached number one in Germany and number two in the United Kingdom. In October 2015, NME placed it at number 81 on its list of the "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years" and in June of the same year Rolling Stone ranked it at number 55 in their "100 Best Songs of the 2000s". "Ms. Jackson" won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group at the 44th Annual Grammy Awards. The music video, directed by F. Gary Gray, features animals nodding along to the song, won the BET Award for Video of the Year and MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video. The single helped sell the album following the commercial underperformance of the lead single "B. O. B.", which, despite near universal acclaim from critics, failed to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 and only reached number 69 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. In 2019, DJ Khaled heavily sampled the song in his single Just Us performed by SZA.more »
