Sade New Song – “Love is Found”

More greatness from Sade already as another new song from her forthcoming Ultimate Collection. First we got her cover of Thin Lizzy’s “Still in Love With You” then last week we heard a Jay-Z remix of “The Moon and The Sky.” This one brings a surprisingly dark heavy production, maybe a better kind of urban crossover.

Sade Remix ft. Jay-Z – “The Moon And The Sky”

When we heard about Sade‘s forthcoming compilation The Ultimate Collection, we drooled over the mere thought of a Jay-Z remix. To our surprise, Jay went and posted it up on his new blog today. Check the stream for “The Moon And The Sky” below, a wonderful Friday send-off. And there’s much more to come: The Ultimate Collection includes more brand new tracks, and Sade will be on tour with John Legend this summer.

Jay Electronica Added To Jay Z’s Label + MP3

This past Friday, at a NYC club, Jay-Z announced that the New Orleans rapper, Jay Electronica, has been signed to his label, Roc Nation.  Jay-Z explained this move by saying that his “whole goal is to reintroduce the magic to hip hop.”  Jay Electronica has been making his name in the underground scene for several years with hit singles like “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit C”.  The two also created a collaborative song, “Shiny Suit Theory”, which features The-Dream and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
