Boots Premieres ‘Dreams’ Featuring Beyonce

In: Donovan, Music

Who is Boots? Truthfully, not that many know. The elusive producer keeps a relatively low profile. What is known is he signed with Roc Nation last year and had a significant hand in producing a good portion of Beyonce’s hit self-titled album.

Boots, born Jordy Asher, recently teamed up with Bey once again, but this time for his upcoming 16-song effort, WinterSpringSummerFall. Here’s what he wrote on Facebook about his new track “Dreams.”

“It’s hard to put into words how thankful I am for everything and everyone who helped get this together. I’ve experienced a lot in my life. Good and bad. But through it all, I’m certain every one of those things had to happen to get me right where I am today. I feel very fortunate for that. Thanks for all of your love and support.” – Boots

Miguel’s Sexy Collaboration With Santana

When Santana finds the right singer to team up with, magic happens. His collaborations with Rob Thomas (“Smooth”), The Product G&B (“Maria Maria”) and Michelle Branch (“The Game of Love”) are truly masterpieces and have all gone to achieve Billboard Hot 100 success. His offerings the past few year haven’t yielded the same results but I have a feeling that’s all about to change.

Indy” produced and written by Miguel will appear on Santana’s next album Corazon scheduled to hit stores May 6. If you loved his contribution to the Girls Season 3 soundtrack, you’ll love this. Once again the “Adorn” singer delivers a sultry soulful track. Miguel can do no wrong in my eyes.

In addition to Miguel, Santana has a few other big names lined up for his upcoming album. Gloria Estefan, Wayne Shorter, Ziggy Marley and Pitbull will all be included. Love that Mr. Worldwide is part of this bunch. There is no stopping the rapper. He’s inescapable and practically everywhere this year. Check out “Indy” featuring Miguel below.

With Martina McBride on board, naturally you’d think a country ditty was in order. Surprisingly, it’s not but rather a soulful collaboration. McBride enlists Kelly Clarkson to cover Etta James’ “In The Basement.”

The duet is part of Martina’s upcoming twelfth studio album, Everlasting, where she tackles classics from the likes of Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, The Supremes, Otis Redding and more. The LP also features a duet with Gavin DeGraw. She’ll be releasing her album independently on her own label, Kobalt Label Services. Check out her duet with Kelly below.

When Prince appeared on New Girl’s post-Super Bowl episode he previewed a new song titled “FALLINLOVE2NITE.” The duet featured vocals from the FOX sitcom’s very own Zooey Deschanel. At least she’s not singing the joys of cotton this time ;)

At long last, the 55-year-old legend shared the full-length version via his 3rdEyeGirl Twitter account. No official word has been released if the track will be featured on his forthcoming album, Plectrumelectrum. Give it a listen below.

pharrell-williams-jt-miley-cyrus-duet

Earlier this week, Pharrell Williams streamed his entire album on iTunes a week before its release. Arguably, his duets with Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus are among the standouts on the 10-track LP. In all honesty though, everything on G I R L is fantastic including his other duets with Alicia Keys, Daft Punk and a hidden track featuring JoJo. But for the argument of this post, I’m keeping it just between JT & Miley’s collaborations.

Pharrell lets Timberlake kick things off on “Brand New.” It’s everything you’d expect from these two. It’s in the vein of their previous collabos. Meanwhile, Williams switches things up with his latest work with Miley. “Come Get It Bae” isn’t my favorite track from the duo, but it’s still catchy and will undoubtedly get some radio play if Pharrell chooses to release it. Check out both tracks below and weigh in afterwards.

Robin Thicke Enlists Tamar Braxton For Ballad Remix

For The Rest of My Life” was originally the second single lifted off Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines album. However, when the ballad stalled and peaked only at No. 48 on the R&B charts, Thicke opted to go with “Give It 2 U” as the follow-up single to his mega-hit “Blurred Lines.” To be fair, the slow jam never really got a shot because “Blurred Lines” became a phenomenon and refused to die. A year later, the ballad is getting new life thanks to Toni’s little sister.

Tamar Braxton lends her velvety vocals to the tender ballad. Gotta say, I much prefer this remix version than the original. The track really lends itself to a duet. Their harmonies are tight and adlibs exquisite. This is some serious baby-making music. Hopefully, Thicke and Braxton give it some much-deserved promotion and film an accompanying music video. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Both Kylie Minogue and Enrique Iglesias are known for serving some major club bangers. One would think when the two collaborated they would give birth to an epic dance anthem. Not so fast. The two international superstars slow things down for a rare intimate track. “Beautiful” will appear on both their upcoming albums, Kiss Me Once and SEX + LOVE.

While I’m a fan of both artists, I’m on the fence with their new offering. Maybe it’s going to be a slow burn. That or until I hear a wicked dance remix and instantly fall in love. Give their duet a listen below which was co-written by Iglesias and Mark Taylor and features production by Metrophonic.

Mary J. Blige spent most of November and December pushing her Christmas album. I’m pretty certain she’s grateful to Disclosure for enlisting her for a hot new collaboration instead of singing another holiday yuletide track.

The English EDM duo recruited the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul for a remix of “F For You” off their Grammy-nominated debut album, Settle. Blige’s sassy soulful vocals really lend themselves to the uptempo track. It’s a surprisingly comfortable fit for Mary. She should consider experimenting with this sound for a future album.

For the accompanying music video, Disclosure not only use their signature rotoscoping on themselves but also on Mary. Watch Ms. Blige get her groove on with the duo while animation surrounds her. The half-animated/half live-action trippy video is a worthy visual for the funky track. Check it out below.
