Ocean + 3000 + Boi = Pink Matter

by ike

Well this isn’t exactly the biggest piece of news, but for it being only the fourth day of the new year, it’s pretty plausible. For those who don’t already know, the headline is self-explanatory: Big Boi will be featured on the upcoming (remix, maybe?) to Frank Ocean’s Pink Matter off his solo debut channel ORANGE. Seeing as this will be the first track OutKast has performed together in, oh I don’t know, 6 YEARS, this is pretty awesome!

However, the original Pink Matter track was penned for both members of OutKast, but André chose to stay solo as he didn’t want a new track releasing on a third person’s album. Whatever that means. News surfaced via Big Boi’s Tumblr page that the song will appear sometime next week and he also included a photo of some of the lyrics. Check below.

Pretty stoked to hear this track, especially it being one of my favorite as well as everyone one else’s off the album. I’m more interested to see if André 3000 will include an updated verse and where exactly Big Boi will be featured (in terms of placement among Frank and André). Also, will there be a new track line, or is this just an updated version of the original that just features Big Boi’s vocals? Let’s hope not.

Either way, we won’t have much longer to wait. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, make sure to also check out Big Boi on the remix to T.I.’s Sorry on his Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head.
