True to form, Jay-Z has succeeded where many others, including Drake, have failed.

The Roc Nation head has recorded the elusive Sade for a remix of her song "The Moon and The Sky," which he released on his Life And Times website on April 8. The original track was included on her 2010 album "Soldier Of Love" and the redux will be featured on her upcoming "The Ultimate Collection" album, which is scheduled to hit shelves on May 3. On the track, Jay rhymes about being attracted to a woman but the timing isn't in the couple's favor.

Produced by Noah "40" Shebib, Drake's beat miner, the pair tried to nab a Sade collaboration for the Canadian MC's debut "Thank Me Later" without success. "The Moon and The Sky" is Sade's first hip-hop collaboration.
