Big Boi and Phantogram Romance Your ‘CPU’ via ‘Kimmel’
'Vicious Lies' computer-love song comes to small screen
“And it’s you that’s on my computer screen / ‘Cause it’s you that’s on my mind.” That’s the hook from Big Boi’s synth-funk collaboration with Phantogram, “CPU,” from late last year’s Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. When a fur-wearing, Atlanta Falcons-repping Big Boi led a performance of the song last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, they might’ve been on TV, but they must’ve had an eye toward their eventual online audience.
Right here on your computer screen (or mobile device — obsolete already?), watch the OutKast half trade strutting dance moves with smiling Phantogram frontwoman Sarah Barthel. And then re-read André 3000’s disavowal of any OutKast reunion rumors, sigh, and watch again. Better solo OutKast on your computer screen than no OutKast at all.
