“Roses” is the second single released from André 3000’s album, The Love Below, and the third overall single from the OutKast double album following the #1 singles “Hey Ya!” and “The Way You Move.” “Roses” is the only song on The Love Below to feature Big Boi. The song is about Caroline, a beautiful girl with an ugly attitude.
The music video is loosely based on the musical West Side Story. Andre and Big Boi are from rival high schools and come together to fight for the affection of Caroline. The single peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Hot Rap Tracks charts.
