Last week, we got a whiff of “Still in Love With You,” one of the previously unreleased tracks from Sade’s May 3 “Ultimate Collection,” but today we got the big one: the remix of “Soldier of Love” track, “The Moon and the Sky Remix,” featuring Jay-Z. It works surprisingly well.
There’s no interaction between the two, but Jay-Z’s rap in the middle over the Kurt Weil-type melody fits in perfectly. And the remix is truly a remix (hint, hint, Britney and Rihanna). The song opens with an accordion and then steady, militant beats transform it to a completely different song from the original except for Sade’s exquisite heartbroken lyrics.
