"Hey Ya!" is a 2003 number-one single recorded by André 3000 of the hip-hop duo OutKast, released on LaFace Records.
It and "The Way You Move", recorded by Big Boi, the other member of the duo, were released as the first singles from OutKast's double album project Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, which includes a solo album from each member.
Released from André's The Love Below half of the album,"Hey Ya!" peaked at number-one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming OutKast's second number-one single.
It also peaked at number three in the UK charts. Like the rest of The Love Below, "Hey Ya!" features an idiosyncratic, funk influenced sound, which caused the song to chart on the Modern Rock charts.
The song is remembered for introducing the phrase "shake it like a Polaroid picture" into modern pop culture.
