It looks like one of the most anticipated music releases in 2014 has just been announced. Andre 3000 is reportedly set to drop a solo album next year. This is according to Stephen Hill, BET’s president of programming and specials, who wrote on Twitter today,
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*

As we know, Three Stacks is currently busy with the Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is by My Side, which is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September. However, back in July, producer Mike Will Made It posted a video of himself with André 3000 in studio. Back in February, the OutKast member told GQ that new artists have inspired him to work on his solo project:
“There’s a lot of music on the horizon. I’ve been living off the excitement of new artists. I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, “Hey, Andre, we want you on this song.” So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive. I’ve just really been feeding off of that and this year I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year.”
You better consider this good news.
