Outkast has finally reunited! Well, sorta. Andre 3000 and Big Boi have teamed up for a remix of Frank Ocean's song "Pink Matter." The version on Ocean's Grammy-nominated album "Channel Orange" features only Andre 3000.
Ocean wanted Big Boi to appear on the original track, but scheduling conflicts made that impossible, so the ATL rapper added a verse for the remix instead, Consequence of Sound reports.
This is the first time Outkast has appeared together on a track since 2010's "Royal Flush," the Huff Post reports.
Initially, Dre felt that if Outkast were to ever reunite, he didn't want it to be on someone else's track. Big Boi explained this on Twitter last summer.
In November, 2012, Andre 3000, who made less than five musical guest appearances throughout the entire year, said he really misses creating music, but he's worried about being judged harshly for every little verse since he's focused on acting and not just music now. "Because I don't do much, they analyze every word and before, you could've had a sh***y verse people just forgot about it. So It's different now," he said.
As far as an official Outkast reunion, Andre revealed he thinks nostalgia can be overrated, and he's worried the fans could be let down. The group's last joint album was Idlewild, which was released in 2006.
In December, 2012, Big Boi dropped his second solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors.
Earlier in January, he tweeted that he will appear on a remix of T.I.'s "Sorry", which also includes an appearance by Andre 3000. So fans will get another mini Outkast reunion, the LA Times reports.
