The hip-hop star and easy listening legend to work together...

Hip-hop star DR DRE is to team up with easy listening legend BURT BACHARACH

for a series of collaborations.

The 74-year-old star says he’s working on samples sent to him by the controversial rapper.


Bacharach is best know for penning 60’s love songs for the likes of Dionne Warwick, Cilla Black and Sandie Shaw.

He told today’s (February 6) Sun newspaper: “He gave me these drum beats and told me to do what I like. These won’t be like usual songs. These are like compositions, which is very interesting to me.”

It is thought that Dre

is planning an album of different music styles.
