With all the internet-melting hysteria over Justin’s return to music after a six-year hiatus, less publicized and less intentional was an Outkast sort-of reunion.
When recording Channel Orange, Frank Ocean intended Outkast to appear on his track “Pink Matter.” However, Outkast’s estrangement prevailed and only Andre 3000 appeared on the track… until now. With this remix, and Big Boi’s addition to it, we have the closest thing we’re going to get to a new Outkast track.
Given that the song that I want to play at my wedding is already a matter of historical fact, I thought I’d use this post to trace a (somewhat fictionalized) relationship arc through songs that I hope will be new to you.
Stolen glances, awkward silences, and endless conversations.
