So, about that remix Big Boi dropped of Frank Ocean's "Pink Matter" featuring Andre 3000. In case you were wondering, it was not an Outkast reunion. That point is made painfully clear in a newly issued statement from Three Stacks, who said he wants to make it clear how he went about contributing to that track and T.I.'s "Sorry." Andre would later add, "...I was surprised to read about these remixes."
You can read the full statement below.
"It's important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to 'Pink Matter' and 'Sorry.'
I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi's name came up.
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.
I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn't."
