Elton John thinks “Tracks of My Tears” is the greatest pop song ever written. Lucky for him, he’s on a new duet of the song with the man behind the hit, Smokey Robinson.
Smokey & Friends also features contributions from Elton John, Steven Tyler, James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, Cee Lo Green, Miguel, Aloe Blacc and Jessie J.
Smokey Robinson is preparing to release Smokey and Friends, an album of duet updates on some of the man’s greatest songs.
On Feb. 19, singer William “Smokey” Robinson was born in Detroit, Mich and John Singleton became the first African-American director to be nominated for an Academy Award.
