Rapper DMX has said that he has recorded a collaboration with U2 front man Bono called Skyscrapers, adding that the new track has "a Miami feel to it".

The song will feature on DMX's comeback album, which will feature numerous guests, including Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Usher.

Speaking about the track on N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN’s Drink Champs podcast, he said, "It’s crazy. It got like a Miami feel to it. I feel like I want to shoot the video here."

The rapper said he was introduced to Bono by Swizz Beatz, his long-time friend and collaborator who is also executive producing X’s forthcoming album.

Swizz has previously spoken about his relationship with the U2 singer, explaining that they met through Interscope Records boss Jimmy Iovine. "Bono, he's a music lover. I’m a music lover. We knew each other for a while," he told MTV in 2010.

Meanwhile, U2 have been working on new songs during lockdown and have kept in contact via Zoom.

Speaking on The Jo Whiley Show on BBC Radio 2 last year, guitarist The Edge said, ''I'm known as the technology genius, but basically that's because I know how to fix the printer.

"That's about the extent of my technology skills, but to say that sets me on a whole different level to everyone else in the band should explain what you're dealing with so yeah it has been challenging at times.''
