Future Baby Mama was a promotional single to be released from Prince's 32nd album Planet Earth. It was available only in France (where the only commercial single from the album, Guitar, had not been released). The CD contained only the album version of the song.
The single did not enter the charts in France, but in the USA, where the song received some airplay without a promotional release, it reached number 39 on the Billboard R&B Chart.
On 10 February 2008, the track won the Grammy Award for "Best Male R&B Vocal Performance" (beating Woman by Raheem DeVaughn, B.U.D.D.Y. by Musiq Soulchild, Because Of You by Ne-Yo and Please Don't Go by Tank).
