Demi Lovato and Q-Tip team up for an updated version of Elton John’s classic hit, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”

The 1976 classic spent six weeks at No. 1 in the U.K., and today Demi and Q breathe new life into the with a melty duet.

The track serves as one of many slated for Elton’s forthcoming Revamp and Restoration albums. Read more about that here.

Here’s a bunch of press release jargon from Demi and Q about their collab:

 

 

“Elton’s influence shows you that the possibilities of music are endless. He’s astute in so many types of music, he does it all and being a hip hop kid, our whole aesthetic was that everything was up for grabs and that’s how he has always been to me,” Q-Tip said.

“I remember the premiere of ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ with Kiki Dee and seeing it as a kid and loving it. Elton was gracious enough to be part of the last Tribe album, so it was serendipitous and logical to return the favor. Rhythmically, we just wanted to make it a little funkier. He’s a master showman, singer, pianist. He’s the all round goods.”

“‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ is such a classic, it’s just always been around me,” Lovato added.

“I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work on this. Elton’s such an icon, a legend, I’m honored to be a part of Revamp. He’s a trail blazer and he’s authentic and true to himself. This version of the song has a more soulful edge. Q-Tip did a great job.”
