New Quincy Jones Track Feat. Ludacris: “Soul Bossa Nostra”

We already gave you a taste of what to expect from Quincy Jones‘ new collaborative album entitled, Q: Soul Bossa Nostra (set for release in November).  Now, here is the album’s title track “Soul Bossa Nostra”, which Ludacris, Naturally 7 and Rudy Currence (signed to DTP) have given a hip hop revamp. Jones’ 1962 single was re-born as the Austin Powers theme song and sampled by Ludacris on his 2005 single “Number One Spot,” which garnered him a VMA.

Mark Ronson Remixes

By now, you’ve surely heard Mark Ronson & the Business INTL‘s lead-in single “Bang Bang Bang”.  It’s become a smash hit everywhere, from Japan to Australia, France to Finland.  This disco number featuring Q-Tip and MNDR vamps up the French nursery rhyme “Alouette,” creating a NYC hip-hop sing-along with a twist of je ne sais quoi.  The new batch of remixes for “Bang Bang Bang” features Russ Chimes, SBTRKT, and Count & Sinden.

Another must-hear remix is Major Lazer‘s transformation of the originally breezy “Bike Song” from cutesy to sexy.  Major Lazer focuses on Spank Rock’s verse for the song’s total makeover into a club bumpin’ techno beat.
