Since the release of Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, Big Boi has released two solo albums while the latter Andre 3000 has only contributed in some notable collaborations including with Frank Ocean, Beyonce, John Legend and more. But it seems that Andre 3000 now has a new album in the works for next year.
While at the Lil Wayne, T.I., and 2 Chainz show in Washington, DC yesterday, Stephen Hill, the president of programming at BET, ran into Andre 3000 and tweeted their conversation.
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 confirmed, a new album by the Outkast member would be his newest slate of solo, original work since The Love Below, which is his half of the 2003 Outkast album. Look at the music video for “Prototype” below.
