New Music: Frank Ocean f/ OutKast – ‘Pink Matter (Remix)’

Pink Matter (Remix)

Destiny’s Child is linking back up and now OutKast reunites for a brief moment on the remix to Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter.” The original features André 3000, but now Big Boi adds a verse to the song off Ocean’s Grammy-nominated album channel ORANGE.

Sir Lucious kills ‘em softly on his nasty verse. “I make her call me B.B. King because I gave her the blues,” he raps.

Big Boi previously revealed that Frank wanted both him and André on the track, but Three Stacks didn’t want an OutKast collaboration on anyone else’s album.

While we wait for that elusive OutKast album, hear the duo reconnect on “Pink Matter.”

André 3000

André 3000 doesn’t do many interviews, but he sat down with Fuse to raise awareness for prostate cancer as part of Gillette’s “Movember” campaign. Dressed in a beanie and denim jacket, the OutKast rapper spoke about working with T.I. on “Sorry,” being proud of his partner-in-rhyme Big Boi, and collaborating with Frank Ocean on his debut channel ORANGE.

“He said, ‘I just want you to tell a story. Honestly, I don’t care what it is, just tell a story,’” said Three Stacks of the Odd Future singer. “When I got the track ['Pink Matter'], I just started writing to it. I’m just happy to be a part of that whole movement and his whole movement because he has become a whole ‘nother kind of icon in today’s age. I was just happy to be a part of that album.”

He also said that plans for another OutKast album are up in the air. “We don’t know what the future will be. There could be, I just can’t say right now,” he said, while warning fans not to believe everything they read.

“If we decide to do something, you’ll know about it,” he added. “The Internet is such a misinformation age right now. There’s so much bad stuff that you don’t even know what to believe, so don’t believe anything about OutKast on the Internet until we say it.”
