It's always a tricky subject when attempting to alter classic songs from musical icons, but Brooklyn based KAMAU has stepped up and done exactly that. He's chosen Outkast's hit "Hey Ya!" and truly re-created it with a full live band, pairing it with a well done video as well.
Layering violins, bass, piano, acapella singing, and more, this cover brings a more soulful feel to the song we all love and has got us wondering more about KAMAU. Channeling his inner Andre 3000, KAMAU’s nails the cover with his soulful singing / rapping hybrid. Check out the video below and enjoy!

Outkast's "Ms. Jackson" is easily a favorite of mine and many others from the group, and when I saw that The Golden Pony had attempted to remix it, after recently premiering his insane Flume x Chet Faker remix, I got pretty excited. My excitement was validated as he has done the classic track justice. We are left with a spacey, chilled out house rendition of the memorable song that will bring you to some summery vibes regardless if the sun is shining or not.

The perfection was real on Friday, April 12th 2014 as one of the most iconic rap duo's of all time brought the curtains down on the first day of Coachella Music and Arts Festival. We've tracked the news of Outkast reuniting to celebrate 20 years of delivering music to the masses since last year and the first of a long list of high profile performances at this summers music festivals went down flawlessly. Big Boi and Andre 3000 played what felt like their entire discography which included hits like "Bombs Over Baghdad", "Rosa Parks", "Ms. Jackson" and featured guest performances from Janelle Monáe, Future, Sleepy Brown and an attempt to bring out Killer Mike that was cut due to time constaints. You can view the performance in it's entirety below and above all… Enjoy!
