“Grapes On A Vine” F. Lil Wayne

    Wait, how are we just hearing about this project now? Apparently soul/R&B  legend Betty Wright has recorded an entire album with the Roots and it’s due out Nov. 15. While it’s still not clear how the record, Betty Wright: The Movie, slipped under our radar, we’re at least hearing about it the right way through this memorable new album leak. “Grapes on a Vine” pairs up Wright’s strong-as-steel pipes with some rockin’ music from the Roots and a completely palatable Lil Wayne guest verse. Weezy provides some ad libs, too, and they serve as a grounding complement to Wright’s ear-bending vocal solo. Stream the track below. [RR]
