FROM ‘NOT TONIGHT’ TO ‘IN THE AIR TONIGHT’

The rapper seems determined to wreck her reputation with her cover of AOR dullard Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'...

Rapper LIL’ KIM, who plays her first solo live dates in the UK in June, has been filming the final scenes to her latest video.

But in a break from her outrageous norm, Kim‘s latest track is a cover of Phil Collins‘ ‘In The Air Tonight’, the second release from the ‘Urban Renewal’ covers album, in which popular R&B and rap stars – including Kelis, Montell Jordan, Joe and Changing Faces, among others, tackle “popular” Collins songs.

The first cover to be taken from the album, ‘Another Day In Paradise’ – a duet featuring siblings Brandy and Ray J – has already shifted a quarter of a million copies, despite the album itself only being released in Germany.

Lil’ Kim also makes a guest appearance on the forthcoming ‘Lady Marmalade’ single.
