Ms Jackson was the song that got me into OutKast, but by the time they got to Speakboxxx/The Love Below they hit the big time with the single Hey Ya!, radio friendly pop with the wonderful “Shake it like a Polaroid picture” which immediately makes it seem like decades ago, and deeply, deeply dark lyrics about the futility of monogamy.

The slightly weird title belies that this is effectively two albums – Speakerboxxx by Big Boi and The Love Below by Andre 3000. That’s one way to deal with “artistic differences” I guess…
