Kandi Burruss pays homage to hometown buddies OutKast by sampling the duo’s classic “Elevators” on “Me & U” off her upcoming album Kandi Koated (Dec. 14). The ballad, co-written by and featuring Ne-Yo, is dedicated to her man, with lyrics detailing how the couple is almost the same person. “Me and you, there’s almost no such thing as us two/ We’re almost one person now,” she sings over the slinky instrumental.
“I love that song, partially because [Ne-Yo’s] production team, they took the song ‘Elevators’ by OutKast and flipped the track,” the “Real Housewife of Atlanta” previously told Rap-Up TV. “I’m an ATLien, and when he turned that track and flipped it, he made it into a love song.”
