*The previously-reported remix of Sade’s song “The Moon and the Sky” featuring Jay-Z – her first ever collaboration with a rapper – arrived online today.
“Smoke and mirrors clouding my vision, we hit a wall/Couldn’t see the moon and the sky behind the fall,” Jay raps over the English R&B group’s simmering beat.
The collabo is part of Sade’s new 29-track “Ultimate Collection,” which also features a remix of Sade’s “By Your Side” courtesy of the Neptunes.
The original version of “The Moon and the Sky” opens “Soldier of Love,” Sade’s first album in a decade that topped the Billboard 200 last year and has sold 1.3 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Listen to the remix below.
