Here’s one you didn’t see coming. Seminal English r&b group Sade, who have been around since the 80s, have enlisted in none other than rap guru Jay-Z on a remix of their Soldier Of Love cut, “Moon And The Sky” which will appear on their forthcoming 2-Disc The Ultimate Collection.
As all fans of the outfit know, Soldier Of Love was their first record in a decade, continuing to pursue their fusion of jazz, r&b, and soft rock particularly on the album version of “Moon And The Sky.”
The Hova rendition tends to differ significantly; it’s now menacing and more hard hitting with a hip hop enthused beat, but still appropriate for Sade Adu’s smokey vocals, and especially for Jay’s verse.
There will also be a new track on the collection called “Still In Love With You,” check it out when it drops May 3rd.
