Devon soul singer teams up with crack-obsessed hip-hop group

Joss Stone has teamed up with rap duo Clipse, to record a song for each of their forthcoming albums.

Stone and Clipse, consisting of brothers Malice and Pusha-T, have recorded a song for Stone’s new album, the follow-up to last year’s ‘Introducing Joss Stone’.

The singer has also contributed vocals to a track on Clipse’s forthcoming album, due out in June and rumoured to be titled ‘Spirit Of Corruption’.

The duo and Stone have already released a track on ‘Randy Jackson’s Music Club, Volume 1’ album, entitled ‘Just Walk On By’.

However, Clipse’s contribution was cut from the final version of the track.

Stone has kept a low profile in the UK since her badly-received speech at last year’s Brit Awards, where she reportedly spoke in an American accent.

However, her fame has increased in the US.
