Now we know what Grammy winner Jon Batiste did on his summer break from band leading Stephen Colbert’s talk show.
Batiste announced at the start of the summer he’d be back on Colbert after Labor Day. Seriously, his absence has a lot to do with his wife’s illness.
But one thing Batiste has done is create a new single with Oscar winner Diane Warren and singing group Pentatonix. It’s called “Sweet.” The song, written by Warren, is included in her terrific album “The Cave Sessions, Vol. 1” from last winter, but now it’s being released as a single. Warren flew into New York in late June to film a video with Batiste. In the meantime, they’ve made a lyric video.
“Sweet” is an earwig, meaning it’s a very catchy number. Once you hear it a couple of times, it’s going to be stuck in your head! (PS Unlike Beyonce’s songs, it’s all new and not sampled from anything.)
