André 3000’s ‘New Blue Sun’ Outperformed 2023 First Week Sales for Lil Wayne, Nas, and More

Released on Friday, New Blue Sun arrives 17 years after the release of Outkast’s final album, Idlewild. The album sees André playing the flute alongside featured musicians such as Nate Mercereau, Surya Botofasina, Deantoni Parks, Diego Gaeta, Matthewdavid, V.C.R, Diego Gaeta, Jesse Peterson, and Mia Doi Todd.

Though André doesn’t rap on the project, some of the artist’s hip-hop peers have already requested a different spin on the LP, with Paul Wall asking his Twitter followers to hook him up with a chopped and screwed version, and Snoop Dogg expressing his desire to rap on Dem Jointz’s remix of the opening track.
