Frank Ocean has unveiled his 'Pink Matter' remix featuring Outkast's Big Boi and Andre 3000, marking the first time the pair have featured on the same track since 2010.

The original version of the song, which appeared on Ocean's critically acclaimed album 'Channel Orange', featured a contribution from Andre 3000, but it was was revealed earlier this month (January 3) that Big Boi had been working on a remix of the track after he postured a picture of the lyrics he was writing online.

The new version of the track was premiered on East Village Radio and is now available to stream at Hiphop-n-more.com. Big Boi recently revealed that Ocean had originally wanted both rappers to appear on the original but that Andre 3000 ruled it out. "[He] didn’t want an OutKast Record Coming out on anybody else's LP," he tweeted.

Outkast released their last studio album in 2006, both Big Boi and Andre 3000 have appeared on records together since, first with 2008 track 'Royal Flush', which also featured Raekwon, then 'Lookin For Ya' in 2010. Big Boi released his most recent solo album, 'Vicious Lies And Dangerous Rumours', in December last year.

Frank Ocean's 'Channel Orange' was recently voted the Best Album of 2012 in a poll of polls. HMV's Poll of Polls used the results from NME's Best Album of 2012 list alongside data from other publications, including The Guardian, The Times, BBC, Mojo, Music Week, the Evening Standard, Rolling Stone and more, to come up with the ultimate 'Best Of' list for the past year.
