Jay-Z and his protege Mr. Hudson collaborated on his latest single “Forever Young” from “The Blueprint 3”. The song comes originally from popular 80s band Alphaville. Mr. Hudson’s voice does come in very close to the original band’s lead singer.
There’s a lot more coming from Jay-Z right on time for New Year’s eve. “On to the Next One” feat. Swizz Beatz is set to be released as his new single at NBC’s “New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly”. The video will also first be shown there. Jay-Z is set to perform with Rihanna on Carson Daly.
On other Jay-Z news, he is reportedly going to take his wife’s name. He will soon be called Shawn Knowles-Carter.
“They want to keep Knowles because Beyonce’s parents didn’t have any sons and they’re keen to keep the name going strong, especially if they don’t produce any children themselves,” a source said.
I must say that’s a very classy move from Jay-Z!
