New Music: Quincy Jones f/ Akon – ‘Strawberry Letter 23’

Akon reinterprets the Brothers Johnson 1977 hit “Strawberry Letter 23” for the first single from Quincy Jones’ Q: Soul Bossa Nostra, a collection of classic Quincy productions remade by today’s stars. A video was shot last week in Los Angeles with director Dayo.

Others paying homage to the legendary producer include Jennifer Hudson (“You Put a Move on My Heart”), Ludacris and Naturally 7 (“Soul Bossa Nova”), and Usher, Robin Thicke, Trey Songz, Tyrese, and more on the Jermaine Dupri-produced “The Secret Garden.”
