Swizz Beatz sat down with Paper Mag to discuss his new position as Creative Director over at Reebok and spilled the beans on some of his Haute Living album guests, including a song he has with Bono and Kanye West called “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.
