Akon & Quincy Jones

*Seminal music man Quincy Jones has a new album coming out with the who’s who of current day music called “Soul Bossa Nostra.” Unfortunately it’s been pushed back from it’s Spring release date to … whenever.

Oh well.

In the meantime, Mr. Q and Akon have gotten together to collaborate on a video for the classic “Strawberry Letter 23” which was originally produced by Quincy for the Brothers Johnson back in the late 70s.

Check it out and see if you think it holds up to the original or exceeds it:
