Norah – “I had met and sung with Willie a lot so I feel very comfortable with him, he’s a doll. It never fails though, when he opens his mouth to sing, I get chills. It brings me back to my childhood and that never goes away.”

Norah – ‘I knew who OutKast were and I really liked their music, but I would never have guessed that they knew who I was. Andre 3000 sent me the music, but there wasn’t any singing on it yet so I didn’t know the vocal melody or the words. When we got to the studio he said, ‘Give me a minute,’ and he did all his vocals — a lot of layers, a lot of harmonies. He did it very quickly. I don’t know how much he had prepared or if it was mostly improvised, but he definitely had a clear picture of what he wanted.”
