so.... yuuuup - this happened.
Waajeed was doing a lot of major label work around 2007 (Estelle, Jazmine Sullivan, Jaheim, John Legend, Raheem DeVaughn, Daniel Merriweather, Diddy/Dirty Money, etc...)

& this is one of the highlights

via Jeedo himself...

"Exclusive! Never heard before Cee-Lo x Waajeed collaboration. It was wriiten and demo'ed for the late, great Whitney Houston circa 2007.

The A&R's at RCA were calling any and everybody to find a sound for (what would become) her 2009 release, I Look To You. I worked on seven or eight different versions and finally deciding on this one - with additional parts done by Simon Katz from Jamiroquai.

As far as the lyrics go -- Cee-Lo nailed it! At the time, Whitney was still going though her very public separation with Bobby Brown - so 'Lo wrote the words for Whitney as if she was speaking directly to him.

I wish I would’ve been able to hear her wonderful voice singing these words, but for now - Cee-Lo will do."


i'm hoping this is a sign that Jeed's gonna start leaking all of the other major label stuff he was doing at the time
there's some real gems in there! (A&R's are the WORST!!)

>i would really love to hear the
>Jazmine Sullivan,

we leaked one of the tracks they did together thru my site a few years ago:
http://www.FRESHselects.net/jazminesullivanjumpoff

theres others as well tho

>Diddy,

that shit was CRAZY! hopefully he leaks that
he was doing a lot of demos/reference tracks for Bad Boy the last few years

>Esetlle,

we dropped one called "It Had To Be You" on the Bling47 Radio podcast in like 2009 if you got that
theres at least one other thats still unheard tho


>John Legend Stuff

Jeed's remix for "Save Room" eventually came out on the Re-Edits, Re-Fixes & Re-Mixes CD
it was gonna be released as a 12" but it was right when G.O.O.D. lost their distribution deal in like... '06?

i remember and like the Jazime joint. I'll look for the Estelle and Legend ones

as for Diddy, how did that even happen? My inquiring mind would love to know. I mean Om'Mas was rolling with Diddy a year or two ago, so Didy seems to have his ear to the underground/streets/alt-Black stuff... shit even the Janelle signing?

2677436, Do You Remember Waajeed's Remix Of That Sol Uprising Joint?
Posted by Dj Joey Joe, Fri Mar-23-12 11:24 PM
I use to have it cause I downloaded from Bling47 back in the day, and back then it was said it would be a bonus track on the cd when the Sol Uprising album dropped but when I copped it, Waajeed's remix was never on it or even on the two 12inch singles that were released. :(


2669490, UPDATE: Beyonce got it
Posted by KennyFresh, Thu Mar-01-12 10:14 PM
wow... never heard this version
but apparently Beyonce later bought the Cee-Lo song & replaced the beat
