On this date in 1996, big Boi and Andre 3000 got here collectively to free up their 2nd album ATLiens on R&B icons' LA Reid and Babyface's LaFace statistics. On this album, the Southern playalistic duo expands their field matter from simply their city testimonies from the hood to explorations of extraterrestrial life on Planet Earth.
Outkast's most recognizable element of their creativity is their hooks, which is just about a trademark for the total prepared Noize family unit, but in fact took root as massive Boi and Andre 3 Stacks signature sound on this album, with songs like "ATLiens" and "Elevators(Me and you)" spearheading the success of this album.
The business success of the album become proof of the duo's capability to relay their morphing sounds to their listeners, with the ATLiens task promoting 1000000 copies in three months and achieving double platinum in below seven years.
Shout out to Andree 3000, massive Boi and the rest of the prepared Noize crew for this timeless piece of Hip Hop background!
