Quavo of the hip hip group Migos performs on the Sahara stage during week 1, day 3 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 15, 2018 in Indio, Calif.
This week finds the Must-Hear Music podcast looking at a number of high-profile team-ups you probably didn’t see coming. Okay, Quavo and Cardi B on the same song (“Champagne Rosé”) isn’t a shock, but were you really expecting Madonna to join in the fray? And Bad Bunny nabbing Drake for “Mia,” his potential crossover smash, is another massive Rolodex flex. And then there’s Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello turning to road warriors Portugal. The Man and Whethan for the dance-y “Every Step That I Take.”
In pairings that make a bit more sense genre-wise, Gunna and Lil Baby join forces for the irresistible “Drip Too Hard,” Ella Mai duets with H.E.R. on the troubled “Gut Feeling,” and Elvis Costello reteams with legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach for “Photographs Can Lie” from his new album with the Imposters, Look Now. Plus, we look at a fan suggestion from Twitter – Lauren Alaina’s joyously nostalgic “Ladies In the ’90s.”
