Legendary singer/songwriter, Smokey Robinson is gearing up to release a special duets album titled, Smokey & Friends.  The collaborative project, blends his iconic Motown sounds with some of today’s hottest artists including Mary J. Blige, Cee-Lo Green, Miguel and Jessie J. The album, which is due out August 19, features remixed versions of his signature tunes like “My Girl,” “Tears of a Clown” and “Ooh, Baby, Baby.”

“I would just like the younger listeners to take away that somebody who is their era or in the genre of music that they like is singing with me and they’re going to be curious as to why this particular person wanted to sing with me if they don’t know who I am.  We’re trying to captivate some new audience members,” says Robinson. ”

Check out Smokey with MJB on the slow jam, “Being With You” and tell us what you think…
