USA Today reports that hitmaking rapper has teamed up with R&B singer Miguel to create a song called “Everyday,” and it samples an old Rod Stewart vocal track so liberally that he’s listed as a featured artist. The tune, produced by “Uptown Funk” maker Mark Ronson, appears on Rocky’s forthcoming album.
The song that’s sampled is called “In a Broken Dream,” by an Australian rock band called Python Lee Jackson. Rod sang guest vocals on the song in 1969; it was released in 1970, but it didn’t become a hit until 1972, when it was re-released following Rod’s success as a solo artist.
In related news, the rapper’s upcoming album’s At.Long.Last.A$AP. has been delayed. The set will be released on June 2, not May 12 as previously reported.
