People were ecstatic when they heard that both André 3000 and Big Boi appear on a remix of Frank Ocean’s “Pink Matter,” but André just wants to clarify that this is not an Outkast reunion. Seemingly echoing observations that Outkast reuniting on a couple of disposable remixes isn’t the grand comeback people were expecting, Mr. 3000 felt the need to spell things out for the fans. Via SPIN:
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes.
As long as our last memories of Outkast won’t be limited to Idlewild, we can stand to wait a little bit longer.
