.

Fans were quite excited about this song when it was announced as part of the track list for Elton’s new album The Lockdown Sessions which comes out in full tonight (Friday) across all DSPs. The lead single with Dua Lipa, ‘Cold Heart‘ is out right now and doing quite well.

“I never thought you would end up as the enemy / I always thought you’d be right here, still defending me / I feel so bad for you, lost your identity / Made your decision, it’s a penalty / It’s so hard for me to understand,” raps Nicki on her verse.

“This was one of two songs I wrote the first day I spent in the studio with Andrew Watt, but it began its life as very much an Elton John song and I didn’t really like it, it needed something. And that’s what Andrew did, he chopped up the song and moved the chorus to the beginning, and put on a track that a rapper would use – it was brilliant! That’s when we got Young Thug involved. I’ve admired Young Thug for a while and he sampled one of my songs on his track, High, back in 2018 so it was great to collaborate again,” said Elton about the track.

“And then, I was so pleased when Nicki agreed to do it. I’m very grateful to have such talented artists from a totally different genre to me on this album and that they’ve included me,” the legendary artist continued. Listen to the impressive song below.

Sir Elton John says his new song with Stevie Wonder is «one of the greatest songs» he’s ever written.

The ‘Rocket Man’ hitmaker and the ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours’ singer – who have been friends for five decades – have released the track ‘Finish Line’ from the former’s star-studded ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ LP, which is released on October 22.

The pair previously teamed up on a cover of ‘That’s What Friends Are For’ with Dionne Warwick and Gladys Knight back in 1985.

And the 74-year-old music legend explained how the new duet – which is produced by Andrew Watt – happened entirely behind «accident», but turned out to be his one of his favourite tunes he’s ever released.

Speaking to studio wizard Andrew on Elton’s Rocket Hour on Apple Music 1, the ‘Tiny Dancer’ hitmaker said: «This track I did with Stevie Wonder is a very unusual way of writing. Usually, I write to lyrics, but I wrote the melody first in the studio, and then your girl put lyrics to it.

«And then Stevie came along and played piano. I played electric piano, and then he did harmonica on it. And then we were trying to get another vocalist on it and he wouldn’t do it because I think he thought he’d done enough. And then you put the gospel choir on, Kanye West Gospel Choir on it.

«And I think when Stevie heard that he decided to do the vocal. And I think for me, it’s one of the greatest records I’ve ever made. Because A, it’s Stevie Wonder, and you made Stevie sound like a 17-year-old again. And the sheer joy in his voice, it was magical, magical, the way this thing came together was a series of accidents in a way.

«I’m so proud of this record because I love him so much. He’s always been so kind to me and so sweet to me, the talent is beyond ridiculous.

«And it was just lovely to spend time with him and just see this wonderful human being smiling and happy and playing on a record of mine.»

Speaking of the song, Stevie, 71, said Elton’s «wisdom, pain, soul, love, and resilience» can be felt throughout.

He said: «It is both a joy and honor to sing, play piano and harmonica for Elton! He has truly been one of the great spirits of music, life, friendship and love, who I’ve met on this life journey! True artistry and music like love equals a forever commitment lasting many lifetimes. And Elton, anyone who hears your voice singing «Finish Line», will hear and feel your wisdom, your pain, your soul, your love, but also your resilience….. I love it!! Congratulations to you and our forever and never, never-ending music, friendship, life-song! Long live Sir Elton John!!! (big smiley face!) (sic)»

‘The Lockdown Sessions’ also features tracks with the likes of Brandi Carlile, Charlie Puth, Dua Lipa, Eddie Vedder, Gorillaz, Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rina Sawayama, SG Lewis, Stevie Nicks, and Young Thug.

Are The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie dating?

0

After being seen spending time together on September 25, in Santa Monica, California, Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd drove fans crazy, who in networks commented on a possible romance between the artists. Several photographers captured the actress and the singer dining together at the luxurious Giorgio Baldi restaurant, the same location where they shared an evening in June of this year. The nature of their relationship aroused curiosity among users, however, none of the stars have commented on the subject. According to the international media E! News, one of its exclusive informants, assured that between the protagonist of ‘Maleficent’ and the interpreter of ‘Blinding Lights’ there is no romantic relationship. «They are not together. They have mutual interests and enjoy putting their ideas together to see what comes up, ”confirmed the E! News.

Singer R. Kelly, convicted of abuse and sex trafficking and racketeering by a New York court

The American singer R. Kelly, interpreter of the super-hit I belive I can fly, was found guilty this Monday of organized crime and sex trafficking after a six-week trial that took place in New York, in which dozens of people testified against he. As reported by local media, the jury announced its ruling after nine hours of deliberations, and assumes that a former R&B star in the 1990s, who barely reacted to the decision, faces a sentence that can add up several decades in jail.

R. Kelly was accused by the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York with crimes of organized crime, coercion and transporting women and girls to carry out illegal sexual activities in the United States for two decades, charges similar to those he faces in Chicago, where he was behind bars since his arrest in 2019 until last June.

At the New York trial, the prosecution interrogated at least 10 women who said they had been abused by 54-year-old Robert Sylvester Kelly and dozens of other witnesses who detailed a continuing pattern of abuse for four weeks. The women described on the stage a charismatic celebrity who frequently chose young victims who attended her concerts, who she sometimes sexually assaulted behind the scenes minutes after the show.

The testimonies also revealed prolonged abuse by Kelly against his partners, who he beat, forced to call him “daddy” (daddy), controlled the way he dressed, when they could use the bathroom or eat, how they interacted with other men and if they could leave the rooms of residences or hotels in which he kept them. In addition, they uncovered that R. Kelly used an entire network of employees to assist him in his efforts to recruit, isolate and intimidate young girls.

Attorney Gloria Allred, representative of several of the victims, assured that Kelly is the «worst sexual predator» she has seen during her long professional career. «To begin with, he used the power of his celebrity status to recruit vulnerable minors in order to sexually abuse them,» Allred told reporters in front of the courts, shortly after the sentence was known. The lawyer stressed that these were not simple relationships between a young person and an older person, as argued by Kelly’s defense, but that they were «crimes committed against girls and some adults.» Last week, the artist decided not to testify during the judicial process, in which his lawyers tried to discredit the allegations of sexual abuse through several of his former employees, who claimed they had never seen such behavior and who came to describe him as «chivalrous» .
