While Big Boi has delivered two solo albums in the time since OutKast went on hiatus, André 3000’s musical output has largely been one-off collaborations. But as MissInfo.tv reports, he may have a new album coming out next year.
Stephen Hill, the president of programming at BET, ran into André backstage at the Lil Wayne, T.I., and 2 Chainz show in Washington, DC yesterday. He tweeted their exchange:
Me: hey what’s up? You got the movie coming, right? Andre 3000: yeah…and I got a solo album coming top of the year. Me:*droptofloor*
Update: Billboard has talked to André 3000’s representative, who said, “Regarding reports of a specific plan to release an album in early 2014, there is no official confirmation on that report.”
Though this is far from confirmed, official, or definite, a new André 3000 album would be his first solo endeavor since The Love Below, his half of the 2003 OutKast split LP.
