Listen: Sade Collaborates With Jay-Z on 'The Moon and the Sky'

Click to listen to Sade's "The Moon And The Sky" (Remix featuring Jay-Z)

"The Moon and the Sky," a new track recorded for Sade's new hits set The Ultimate Collection, finds the singer teaming up with Jay-Z for a sexy ballad with moody strings and a hip-hop beat. Sade rarely works with outside collaborators, and it seems clear that Jay-Z is honored to be on the track: His verse is fine but very mannered, as if he was consciously trying to be on his best behavior while working with the legendary singer. The Ultimate Collection will hit stores on May 3rd, but you stream the song now.

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
