Honestly, we are not sure this will be a good fit. Sade’s groove is sexy and smooth like velvet or silk. Jay-Z, while being an incredible artist, can be a bit more aggressive and appropriately so. In ‘Moon and the Stars’ from the Soldier of Love album, there is possibly some room for an improvisational type verse but even imagining it with the current mix seems awkward. We are curious to see how this will work and how it will sit beside other classics from both iconic artists. We are hopeful but uneasy.
