Illogic and Blockhead – two hip-hop mainstays from Columbus, Ohio, and New York City, respectively – will release their first collaborative LP, Capture the Sun, April 16th on Man Bites Dog Records. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to RJD2's wonked out, lurching reworking of "Live From the Horizon," the kind of cut Illogic says comes "when close friends treat you like crap for a while . . . Blueprint told me most great art can't exist without pain." Of the remix itself, Blockhead added: "I was really excited with the direction RJ took the remix. It's cool when someone flips the entire vibe of a song on its back, 'cause it basically feels like creating an entire new song."

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
