A reworked version of Satellite Party's 'Only Love, Let's Celebrate' featuring Perry Farrell, 50 Cent and Kelly Rowland is to open ESPN's NCAA game-night.
An unlikely partnership among rapper 50 Cent, R&B songstress Kelly Rowland and rocker Perry Farrell has resulted in a music/sport promo. The threesome reworked "Only Love, Let's Celebrate', Perry's band Satellite Party new single which will be utilized in the upcoming 2007 college football season on ESPN.
"(ESPN) had the idea to bring in someone who can rap and a female who can sing, and then put it together (as a remix)," Farrell told MTV News. "So when I heard that ESPN was interested in that and they also wanted to get a rapper, they made a wise choice. Their ears were tuning in to the things that I was hoping for. And when they told me they were thinking about 50 on it? Wow, that could be amazing."
The project has been rolling in New York since last month with 50 adding the lyrics. "He started writing once we were down there to kind of feel things out," Perry said. "I had my band jamming. And from there, his producer was sitting there and they were taking all that in, my free flows, and they were listening and kind of taking notes. So he was kind of responding to my stuff at first, but then kind of coming up with his stuff."
A clip for the track will soon be shot to be featured in the opening of ESPN's NCAA game-night coverage. "I think that it's really good and I'm happy I got to do it and partner in it with 50 and Kelly, and I just look forward to rocking people on Saturday nights for the whole football season," Perry added.
