Outkast’s 2000 hit “Ms. Jackson” was inspired by André 3000’s relationship with the mother of his baby mama, Erykah Badu. The R&B star has now revealed how the subject of the hit song felt about it, including herself.
“I still had a kind of sore spot, like I don’t want to hear that, especially when I heard Big Boi’s verse,” Erykah said during an interview with Rap Radar. “And then when I heard André’s verse, I felt very good because his verse was really, really inspiring. He just told how he felt and I’ve always respected that and listened to what he felt and appreciated it.”
