Swizz Beatz Talks Bono & Kanye West Collab

Posted By on April 13, 2011

     Hit producer Swizz Beatz recently spoke with Paper Magazine about his new position as "Creative Director" at the Reebok shoe company. During the interview, Swizz gave some details on his upcoming "Haute Living" album including that he has a song with U2's lead-singer Bono and fellow top-producer Kanye West titled "Skyscrapers."

Can you tell me a bit about your upcoming album?
Haute Living is the album. Super amazing album. I hope that people feel that way–I do. The first single is out right now. It’s called “Everyday,” featuring myself and Eve. We got Lenny Kravitz on the album, Lil’ Wayne on the album, Bono is on the album, Jay-Z is on the album.
Yeah. We got this song–it’s me, Bono and Kanye on this one song called “Skyscrapers.” I recorded with Kanye in the studio and then I recorded with Bono in this actual studio right here. Mary J. Blige is on the album; John Legend is on the album. But they’re on the album in super amazing ways. It’s not like a compilation–it’s a nice mixture of creativity. I had no boundaries with it; I had great partners on the album–Reebok was supporting me (Paper Magazine)
