Following the release of Stankonia in 2000, OutKast had cemented themselves as one of hip-hop’s truly innovative duos, continuously engaging in sonic experimentation and fascinating, imaginative lyricism. It wouldn’t have been far fetched to name both Big Boi and Andre 3000 among the game’s best artists, period. Their catalog certainly boasted ample evidence of such, with classics like ATLiens and Aquemini having had time to resonate. And with Stankonia driving the point home even further, many were curious to see how Kast would follow-up their first album of the millennium.

As it happens, the answer arrived with 2003’s double-disc epic Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, an album that found Big Boi and Andre 3000 engaging in their own separate creative pursuits, markedly different in stylistic nature. And while Big Boi opted to keep things lyrical on Speakerboxxx, Andre’s visionary nature was given room to unfold on the melodic and soulful The Love Below. Few expected to be thurst so effectively into Three Stacks’ colorful world, but the moment “Hey Ya” landed, the game seemed to stop in unison. It wasn’t long before the acoustic, up-tempo, and deceptively bittersweet banger became an instant favorite — not to mention confirming a theory long suspected: that Andre 3000 does not, in fact, originate from this planet.

Lyrics

[Intro: André 3000]
1, 2, 3, uh!

[Verse 1: André 3000]
My baby don’t mess around
Because she loves me so, and this I know for sure (Uh)
But does she really wanna
But can’t stand to see me walk out the door? (Ah)
Don’t try to fight the feeling
‘Cause the thought alone is killing me right now (Uh)
Thank God for Mom and Dad
For sticking two together ’cause we don’t know how (C’mon)

[Chorus: André 3000]
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!
Hey ya! Hey ya!

[Verse 2: André 3000]
You think you’ve got it, oh, you think you’ve got it
But “got it” just don’t get it ’til there’s nothing at all (Ah!)
We get together, oh, we get together
But separate’s always better when there’s feelings involved (Ah)
If what they say is “Nothing is forever”
Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes
Then what makes, what makes, what makes love the exception?
So why oh, why oh, why oh, why oh, why oh
Are we so in denial when we know we’re not happy here?
Y’all don’t want to hear me, you just want to dance

[Chorus: André 3000]
Hey ya! (Uh-oh) Hey ya! (Uh-oh)
Don’t want to meet your daddy
Hey ya! (Uh-oh)
Just want you in my Caddy (Uh-oh)
Hey ya! (Uh-oh)
Don’t want to meet your mama (Uh-oh)
Hey ya! Uh-oh
Just want to make you cumma (Uh-oh)
Hey ya! Uh-oh
I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m just being honest (Uh-oh)
Hey ya!
I’m just being honest

[Bridge 1: André 3000]
Hey, alright now, alright now, fellas (Yeah?)
Now, what’s cooler than being cool? (Ice Cold!)
I can’t hear ya
I say what’s, what’s cooler than being cool? (Ice Cold!)
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright
Okay now, ladies (Yeah?)
Now, we gon’ break this thing down in just a few seconds
Now don’t have me break this thing down for nothing
Now I want to see y’all on your baddest behavior
Lend me some sugar, I am your neighbor
Ah, here we go!

[Refrain: André 3000]
Shake it, sh-shake it, shake it, sh-shake it (Uh-oh)
Shake it, sh-shake it, Shake it, shake it, sh-shake it (Uh-oh)
Shake it like a Polaroid picture, hey ya!
Shake it, sh-shake it, shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, shake it (okay), shake it, sugar
Shake it like a Polaroid picture

[Bridge 2: André 3000]
Now all the Beyoncés and Lucy Lius
And baby dolls, get on the floor
You know what to do, oh, you know what to do
You know what to do

[Chorus: André 3000]
Hey ya! (Uh-oh) Hey ya! (Uh-oh)
Hey ya! (Uh-oh) Hey ya! (Uh-oh, hey ya!)
Hey ya! (Uh-oh) Hey ya! (Oh, oh, uh-oh)
Hey ya! (Uh-oh) Hey ya! (Uh-oh)
