R&B Acts To Record Phil Collins Tribute

R&B Acts To Record Phil Collins TributePhil Collins is being saluted by a number of R&B artists on a tribute record slated for release by Atlantic Records in the first half of 1999. Among the artists contributing tracks to the set are Wyclef Jean, Montell Jordan, SWV's Coko, Warren G, Eternal, Joe, Kelly Price, Jermaine Dupri, and British singer Shola Ama.

Jordan, who cut "Against All Odds" for the disc, and also produced a sassy reworking of "Easy Lover" for Coko, says that Collins' music "represents a time when music crossed color lines. Not because there weren't urban stations, but for me, I was colorblind. Duran Duran was one of my favorite groups because I'd hear them on the radio beside Michael Jackson."
