This year's Outkast tour will continue to bring Southernplayalisticadillicmusik to the actual Dirty South. Or should we say the Sandy South, since 'Kast will be dropping beachside bombs at Gulf Shores, Alabama's Hangout Festival, which takes place May 16th - 18th. The pair will be sharing the stage with the Black Keys, the Killers, Jack Johnson, Queens of the Stone Age, Pretty Lights, the Flaming Lips, the Avett Brothers, Modest Mouse and many more.

Coming days after announcing that they will be playing their first shows in a decade, including Coachella, Delaware's Firefly Festival, Governor's Ball and Georgia's Counterpoint Festival — Outkast's Hangout gig is the fifth date in a promised 40-date festival run. Hangout hip-hop fans can also look forward to catching Wiz Khalifa, Le1f, emerging Chicago wordsmith Chance the Rapper, and Childish Gambino, who should recreate his "3005" video on the ferris wheel.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
