Dionne Warwick has called on the services of Ne-Yo for her 38th studio album Feels So Good (due July 1). Together they remake the diva’s 1964 classic “A House Is Not A Home”, transforming the Burt Bacharach/Hal David-penned ballad into a soulful R&B slow jam. It takes a couple of listens to get your head around but their daring overhaul eventually clicks.
Fingers crossed you like the update because 13 more classic Dionne hits have received the same treatment (albeit with other artists) on the album. Ne-Yo certainly knows his way around a high-profile duet and he shows “A House Is Not A Home” the respect it deserves with a classy arrangement. Listen to the unlikely but ultimately rewarding collaboration after the jump.
