Outkast, "Ms. Jackson"

André 3000 sang the infectious hook to this Outkast classic. A No. 1 single on the Bilboard Hot 100 chart, the song helped push the group’s Stankonia album to platinum four times over. The performance was a foreshadowing of the smart, bluesy, soulful feeling 3 Stacks would later offer fans throughout his The Love Below album.
