Swizz Beatz Builds ‘Skyscrapers’ with Kanye West and Bono on New Album

Bono and Swizz Beatz

Swizz Beatz is reaching stadium status on his second album Haute Living. The producer-rapper landed a coveted collaboration with U2’s Bono and Kanye West for a track called “Skyscrapers.”

While promoting his partnership with Reebok, Swizzy revealed the all-star cut. “It’s me, Bono, and Kanye on this one song called ‘Skyscrapers,’” he told Paper magazine. “I recorded with Kanye in the studio and then I recorded with Bono in this actual studio right here.”

Haute Living has already spawned the Eve-assisted single “Everyday (Coolin’)” and “Rock ‘N’ Roll” featuring Lil Wayne, Lenny Kravitz, and Travis Barker. Other guests include Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, and John Legend. But the songs are no ordinary collabos. “They’re on the album in super amazing ways,” said Swizz. “It’s not like a compilation—it’s a nice mixture of creativity. I had no boundaries with it.”

The project also includes a cameo from his wifey Alicia Keys, who appears on the rock-tinged “International Party.” The happy couple has already shot a video with director Chris Robinson.
