Mama B Transforms Into A Puffer Fish

The family entertainer has an aquatic adventure in the latest preview of her next LP.

Mama B reveals her secret superpower on her charming new single and animated video Puffer Fish — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

In anticipation of Mother’s Day, acclaimed family friendly artist Mama B (aka Jacq Becker) delights audiences once again with the latest sneak peek at her enchanting debut album Imaginology, out May 10. Puffer Fish invites listeners into a world of imaginative narratives and soulful melodies, perfectly timed for spring celebrations.

The song is built on a slinky rhythm with pastel jazzy chords and showcases Mama B’s soulful vocals, filled with clever and evocative wordplay. One playful passage exemplifies the song’s whimsical nature:

“Sometimes it’s better to be tiny
Swim where no one else can go
And if anyone should find me
I’ll hold my breath and then I’ll blow!”

This track is sure to capture the hearts of both children and adults alike with its charming lyrics and captivating sound. “With Puffer Fish, I wanted to create a song that feels like a gentle, musical embrace — a reminder of the small joys and the big adventures we can find in the quietest moments,” shares Mama B. “It’s a tune for mothers and children to share, laugh, and dream to, making it perfect for Mother’s Day.”

Following the success of the album’s first single Unicorn, Puffer Fish continues to showcase Mama B’s unique ability to blend sophisticated production with timeless songwriting. Her background as a music executive and a pop songwriter, with her music featured in major film and television productions and collaborations with industry giants, enriches her songs with depth and a universal appeal.

Raised in a musical household in Newport Beach, Mama B’s formative years were steeped in the sounds of old-school rock ’n’ roll, soul and Motown. Her mother’s band set the stage for a lifelong passion for music. This passion led her to explore various genres, from the vocal prowess of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to classical, jazz, and a cappella during her time at Yale.

Imaginology is a testament to Mama B’s evolution as an artist and her desire to create music that transcends generational boundaries. “I wanted to do something a little different than what I was hearing out in the music space for kids. I wanted to create music that parents would leave on in the car after they drop their kids off to school,” she explains.

The album builds upon the success of Zoology, Mama B’s collaboration with Uncle T, which earned 55 million streams and 14 million views. Awards and recognition, such as being a finalist in the 2021 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and winning a National Parent Product Awards in the Children’s Album category, underscore the impact of her work.

As Mama B embarks on this magical musical adventure, she invites families across the globe to join her in exploring the wonders of Imaginology. A journey into a world where imagination knows no bounds, the album showcases Mama B’s commitment to creating a vibrant, engaging world that celebrates the joy of family, creativity, and shared musical experiences.
