As if Frank Ocean’s and Andre 3000’s collaborative song “Pink Matter” from Ocean’s Grammy-nominated album Channel ORANGE wasn’t good enough, now the other half of Outkast will be on the song!
Big Boi confirmed the news on his Tumblr page along with a picture of a page of lyrics. “Dropping a verse on this Frank Ocean ‘Pink Matter,'” he captioned with the photo. The remix is reported to be released in a few weeks.
Supposedly, Ocean initially wanted Outkast as a group on the song, but Andre didn’t like the idea. “Dre didn’t want an Outkast Record Coming out on anybody else LP,” Big Boi tweeted back in July 2012 to a fan who asked about his absence on the song.
This should satisfy the hunger of Outkast fans who were looking to see the duo work together again. It’ll be the first time since 2006’s Idlewild that the Atlanta rappers will have appeared on a project.
