Singer-producer The-Dream has unveiled a brand new collaboration with Jay-Z. Scroll down and click 'play' to have a listen.

Titled 'High Art', it's a midtempo electro-R&B tune featuring a guest verse from Jay-Z, who slips in a reference to Beyonce's performance at the Super Bowl earlier this year and also refers to his superstar wife as "my Bey-Bey".

'High Art' is taken from The-Dream's upcoming album 'IV Play', which is due out on May 28. As well as Jay-Z, the album features collaborations with Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Mary J Blige, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, Fabolous and Big Sean. In the past, The-Dream has co-produced numerous hits for Beyonce, including her classic 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)'.

He's also contributed to her upcoming fifth album, the follow-up to 2011's '4', which still has no confirmed title or release date. The singer is currently on her 'Mrs Carter Show World Tour' and is due to take to the stage at The O2 in Dublin tomorrow night (May 11).

Meanwhile, Jay-Z is gearing up to hit the road with Justin Timberlake on the 'Legends Of The Summer Stadium Tour'. It kicks off with headline sets at London's Wireless Festival on July 14 - the sole UK stop on the joint tour.
