Fans were left shocked by how traditionally British 21 Savage's mum sounds with her accent in the video clip.

The Hip-hop star's mother, Heather Joseph, has the "most traditional British accent ever" as revealed by resurfaced video from YouTube.
The 26-year-old was arrested by ICE in Atlanta after they discovered that he had moved to the US from Britain in 2005 under his real name Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph.
The "a lot" rapper arrived in the States legally, but allegedly could now be deported after it emerged that his visa expired back in July 2006 and was never renewed.
Rapper 21 Savage faces missing Sunday's (Feb 10th) Grammys, where he is nominated for Record of the Year for “Rockstar”, after still being in custody.
21 Savage's mother took to Instagram to share how she felt on social media about the arrest.
She states "It's a damn shame when we live in a world where people thrive off and feed negative energy.. laugh at others who are going through real life challenges, fighting for their lives & freedom... sick of it! However in the end people will see! This too shall come to pass[.] Free 21 Savage,".
