Paul McCartney has made the top 10 for the first time in decades recently thanks to his collaboration with Kanye West and Rihanna on the song “FourFiveSeconds.” Now, another British rock legend may be about to get a similar boost: Rod Stewart.
USA Today reports that hitmaking rapper A$AP (AY-sap) Rocky 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, due June 2.
The song that’s sampled is called “In a Broken Dream,” by Australian band 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.
