Music Video: Quincy Jones ft Ludacris, Naturally 7, & Rudy Currence - Soul Bossa Nostra
Veteran Quincy Jones is back in the spotlight after 15 years with a new interpretation of his 1962 "Soul Bossa Nova." The Naturally 7 produced song features none other than Ludacris who gives the track an unique spin.
Here's what the legendary musician had to say about the collaboration:
"Naturally Seven is one of my favorite groups," stated Jones. "We've worked together all over the world. They've got a Take 6 influence but they're hip-hop and they do drama and mime and all kinds of things. I think they could be a big inflluence for the next step for hip-hop. They're on there with Ludacris. He did ["Soul Bossa Nova"] another way. He has no end. He's an amazing human being. He cracks me up. He is college educated and from Atlanta; He's very polite. It was 'Sir' and 'Mr. Jones' when I first met him and I said, 'Man, how on Earth did you write, 'Move Bitch, Get Out The Way?' [laughs] Because he's such a gentleman. But he's got that versatility I guess. It was fun. I wrote that in 1962 in 20 minutes for a big band Bossa Nova album right after we left Brazil with Dizzy Gilespie, when the bossa nova first started. And it won't go away. Mike Myers used it for the themes of the Austin Powers films. [Now] Ludacris did it too. It's still here."
