Frank Ocean reunites Andre 3000 and Big Boi on his hit record, “Pink Matter” which excited Outkast fans tremendously. But acc0rding to reports, this ‘reunion’ was unexpected as Andre 3000 thought he made it clear that “he didn’t want an Outkast record coming out on anybody else LP” according to a tweet sent out by Big Boi. (pitchfork)
“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.”
