When you are starting out as a new band and putting together your debut album, it is always nice to get some support from some stars who are already in the music industry. However, former X Factor boyband Union J could never have imagined the support that they are being given right now.
It has been confirmed that rapper Jay-Z has agreed to do a duet with Union J, laying down some lyrics for one of their new tracks. Jay-Z was offered the choice of doing a duet with The Wanted, who are already fairly well-known, or taking a gamble on new boys Union J. Being a man who likes to take a bit of a gamble on new artists, Jay-Z decided to take the latter.
It is claimed that Jay-Z felt that the Union J boys had more of an urban vibe to them that The Wanted and felt that his vocals would sit well with their harmonies. The title of the track is not yet known but it is expected to be the lead single from the debut album by Union J.
The news will come as a big blow to The Wanted, who have been hoping to get a collaboration with a big American artist for sometime now, as they bid to rival One Direction as the biggest boyband on the planet. WIth Jay-Z choosing Union J over The Wanted, we could well see them being the next big boyband and One Direction's biggest rivals.
