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.
