Kanye West and Bono Join Forces on New Swizz Beatz Album
Published Apr 13, 2011Having worked with everyone from Jay-Z to Katy Perry to Elton John, Kanye West's back catalogue looks mighty impressive as is, but the rapper's resume is about to look a lot more golden: he's just made a song with iconic U2 frontman Bono.
Producer Swizz Beatz confirmed the collaboration, titled "Skyscrapers," which will appear on his next album, Haute Living.
"It's me, Bono, and Kanye on this one song called 'Skyscrapers.' I recorded with Kanye in the studio and then I recorded with Bono in this actual studio right here," Beatz told Paper magazine.
The album, Beatz' second, promises to be even more of a star-studded affair, rumoured to also feature collaborations with Eve, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and John Legend, among others. No word yet on when the disc will be released though. Maybe he will hit us up with some choice cuts for Monster Mondays?
