A-Trak, Kimbra and Foster the People frontman Mark Foster have joined forces for "Warrior," the latest track in Converse's Three Artists, One Song series. The song is part of the launch of a line of footwear that will be sold exclusively at Journeys shops; it will be made available as a video and free download from the Journeys website on April 5th.

"I had such a good time diving into the creative process working with two incredible artists," Foster said in a statement. "This project has given me a newfound appreciation for the power of collaboration."

Previous installments in Converse's series of collaborations include "DoYaThing," a track by Gorillaz with James Murphy and Andre 3000; Best Coast's "All Summer," featuring Kid Cudi and Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend; and Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K.'s "I'm A Goner."

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
