Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000 - 'DoYaThing'
Specially commissioned Converse track
So far, so expected. But then comes Outkast’s Andre 3000, who manages to steal the show from under their feet. 'Dre's flow comes at a breakneck speed, bouncing around the title line “Do ya own thang.” Plus he gets massive extra points for managing to effortlessly crow-bar the words “onomatopoeia”, “Slick Rick”, “Juicy Fruit” and a line about his pyjamas into the track. Murphy makes a brilliant backstage star, but the song is all about the Damon and Andre moment. Would it be too much to ask for more squiggly, giggly hits from the duo?
