Andre 3000 Clears Up Outkast Reunion Rumors [PHOTO]
With Outkast member Big Boi, joining Andre 3000 on Frank Ocean‘**s “Pink Matter” single, as well as **T.I.‘s track “Sorry,” fans have been getting excited with the prospects of a reunion between the two.
With the recent release of the “Pink Matter (Remix),” Andre 3000 went to SPIN Magazine to clear the air about any possible reunion between the two members.
Andre 3000′s statement via SPIN:
*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.*
