God really does answer prayers. Ok, I’m being dramatic. I haven’t prayed for a new Andre 3000 album, but just the other day I was discussing the brilliance that is The Love Below. Would you believe that was an entire decade ago? And even though he’s been featured in many a song since then and collaborated with Beyoncé (again) for their cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” it’s more than time that he return to the studio. And fortunately for us, it appears that that is exactly what one half of the Outkast duo is doing.
Stephen G. Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials for BET spoke to Andre at Lil Wayne, T.I.’s and 2 Chainz’ “America’s Most Wanted Tour” and the conversation went something like this, according to Hill’s subsequent tweet:
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*

If this is indeed true and the album comes out at the top of 2014, as Andre 3000 claims, this is great news.
And in related news, 2 Chainz took a picture with 3000 and tweeted this picture with the caption: “My favorite artist.” Definitely one of the greats.
Are you excited for a new Andre 3000 album?
