Nas Joins Carlos Santana on AC/DC’s ‘Back in Black’

NasQueens MC Nas has collaborated with legendary guitarist Carlos Santana for a cover of the 1980 AC/DC classic ‘Back in Black,’ which will appear on Santana’s as-yet-untitled forthcoming album of cover songs.

Also featured on the album are rockers Chris Cornell, covering Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love,’ Joe Cocker, singing Jimi Hendrix‘ classic ‘Little Wing,’ and keyboard player Ray Manzarek of The Doors, doing a rendition of his former band’s ‘Riders on the Storm.’

“I paid special attention to the groove so the females would get completely aroused,” Santana said of the album, which will be released on September 21.

The Nas feature is the latest in a string of Santana collaborations with rappers. Santana’s 1999 multi-platinum album, ‘Supernatural,’ featured House of Pain rapper Everlast, and the Wyclef Jean-aided hit ‘Maria Maria.’
