  • MTV.com: Jermaine Dupri Remakes 'Secret Garden' With Usher, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke
    Feb 17, 2010

    Jermaine Dupri is spearheading a new version of a classic song, and just like "We Are the World," it's another Quincy Jones tune.

    JD has called on Usher, Robin Thicke, Tyrese and Trey Songz to cover Jones' 1989 hit "The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite)." The original version starred seductive vocalists James Ingram, Al B. Sure, El DeBarge and the incomparable Barry White.

    Right before the NBA All-Star Game, Dupri talked about his and his team's rendition.

    "It took a minute for me to even think about touching it," JD admitted. "It's a couple of components in that record that you don't wanna touch — Barry White being one of the main components. I had to leave him [on the song]. There's nobody out there in the world that's got a voice like his or even sounded the way he sounded. So I had to make sure I could leave that. It's gonna be interesting for y'all to hear how these young guys sound mixed in with him."
