Fans were ecstatic when they found out Outkast collaborated on Frank Ocean’s record “Pink Matter”, but it looks like fans were mislead. After hearing rumors of Outkast reuniting, it looks like everyone jumped the gun because Andre 3000 discussed Big Boi’s verse and said it wasn’t a project that they worked on together. I guess that makes sense considering Andre’s verse was on Channel Orange and Big Boi recorded it after it’s release, but still! Click below to see what he had to say.
Andre 3000 said the following,
“It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi‘s name came up. I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes. I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn’t.”
