Lenny Kravitz and Jay-Z

The rock and rap worlds collide on two tracks from Lenny Kravitz’ new album Black and White America, due August 30. Jay-Z spits a verse on the thunderous “Boongie Drop” and Drake guests on the feel-good “Sunflower,” co-written by Lenny and Swizz Beatz.

“When I wrote ‘Boongie Drop’ I heard a rap in the middle, and I immediately heard Jay’s voice and we had collaborated twice before, so I called him and when I went to New York I put him on the track,” the rocker told Billboard. “And then I got on the phone with Drake for [‘Sunflower’] before he had even heard the track and he said, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it. I’m a fan and I love your work and I would love to be on it.’ So that was cool.”

Neither rapper can be heard on the 90-second snippets, but you can still get a feel for the songs.
