Swizz Beatz, Bono, and Jay-Z Have Something to Say About Haiti

No, seriously: Swizz is currently in the midst of producing a song featuring both U2 and Jay-Z, expected to be sold on iTunes, with proceeds going to support relief efforts in Haiti. Said the Edge on a radio show over the weekend, "Bono got a call from a producer, Swizz. He and Jay-Z wanted to do something for Haiti ... So, Bono came up with the phrase on the phone, and last night we were here, we wrote a song — finished, recorded, and sent it back to them. So, that might be the next thing you hear from us!" Swizz added via Twitter, "Me, Bono, Hova have something to say about Haiti. Stay tuned. I told you I was working on something amazing for Haiti. They need us!" There's no announced release date, but trust that as soon as this thing is available, we will inform you. [Billboard]
