Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz and Bono to Release Haiti Relief Track

Well, apparently we’ll soon be hearing some of that new international sound that Swizz Beatz has been talking up. In a series of tweets over the weekend, details emerged that a new track is progress that features Jay-Z, Swizzy and Bono and Edge from U2 in a plea for Haiti relief funds.

“ME, BONO, HOVA, HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT HAITI,” wrote the totally excited Swizz over the weekend on Twitter. “STAY TUNNED I TOLD YOU I WAS WORKING ON SOMETHING AMAZING FOR HAITI THEY NEED US!!!!!!”

While the content and style of the song is currently unknown, it seems that Swizz came to Jay with the original concept. Once Hov was on board, they called up the U2 folks — namely Bono and Edge — and got the ball rolling towards an international anthem that could really help people in need. While many would ordinarily shake their head at this sort of global pop collaboration, there’s a real possibility to go beyond music and garner some real deal donations.

“Last night we wrote a song,” said a follow-up tweet from Edge, U2′s beanie-toting guitarist. “Bono got a call from a producer, Swizz. He and Jay-Z wanted to do something for Haiti. So, Bono came up with the phrase on the phone, and last night we were here, we wrote a song – finished, recorded and send [sic] back to them. So, that might be the next thing you hear from us!”
