Watch: Santigold's new video, 'Big Mouth' takes a dig at Lady Gaga
The clip is a fun combo of childlike animation and live action as Santigold’s throwing attitude all over the place, backed up by her two-women crew S1Wettes.
Santigold also decides to take a swipe at Lady Gaga, who is represented as an animated blond mermaid. “Gaga-ga all slightly off/not me I take the loss,” she sings. We’re not really sure what that means, but it’s probably not good, especially since Gaga gets eaten by an underwater tiger.

The sassy, fierce dance tune, full of tribal beats, is from Santigold's forthcoming Downtown/Atlantic album, “Master of My Make Believe,” her first album since her 2008 debut.
"I still have the songs that sound very electronic and clubby... but I have a couple ballads on this one -- my own type of ballads, where they just sound big," she told Billboard of the release, which has been delayed a number of times. She’s working with a slew of producers on the project, including TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, Greg Kurstin, and Switch.
