Cher x Wu? OH HELL YES!
Cher has contributed vocals to not one but two songs on Wu-Tang Clan's upcoming The Wu - Once Upon a Time in Shaolin -- you know, that whole one copy, scepter-like album thing.
Cher's rep did confirm the news to Rolling Stone, saying, "She recorded her parts separately, so I don't believe there was direct interaction."
Well that's how most features and collabos are done in this digital day and age.
Now about this Wu record.
Wu-Tang plans to press only one copy of the album and sell it to the highest bidder. It will be held in a container carved in nickel silver, which was handcrafted across three months by 10 artists. So, yeah, it's special and a cool ploy by the rap legends. Whoever bids on it is getting quite a collectible piece.
About the piece, Wu's RZA has said, "We're about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We're making a single-sale collector's item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king."
A Cher-assisted scepter, mind you.
What would you bid on Wu-Tang Clan's new album?
