Although Jay-Z may be one of the most successful rappers of all time, one project he will never accomplish, is working with singer Sade.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Sade reveals that Jay–Z and other MCs have approached her about rapping over her beats or having her sing the hook on their records, but she has politely declined.
“I’m too scared they’ll find me out. It’s like The Wizard of Oz. They’ll find out there’s nothing there. As for collaborations, I’m collaborating with the band and do what we do. I see myself as a member of this band who does these songs that we write.”
However, you may have a better chance in copying a sample from one of the most recognized singers of all time, as Sade says it won’t cost you much.
“When it comes to sample clearances, I’m probably the cheapest chick in the west.”
