Kanye & Busta Singles Get Diva Treatment

Kanye West and Busta Rhymes are turning to two reigning pop divas to remix their new singles.

The Louis Vuitton Don has chosen “Paranoid” as his next single off 808s & Heartbreak, but unlike the album version (listen below), the radio edit will feature new vocals from Rihanna. The Def Jam labelmates toured together on Kanye’s Glow in the Dark outing last year. “Rihanna runs the world,” ‘Ye once posted on his blog.

Meanwhile, Busta Rhymes has recruited Estelle for his pop-friendly single “World Go Round” (listen to the Estelle-less version below). The “Arab Money” MC contributed a remix to the British singer’s hit “American Boy” in 2008. Busta is set to explode with his eighth studio album B.O.M.B. in February.

The reworked versions of “Paranoid” and “World Go Round” are scheduled to impact radio later this month.
