Ew. I personally think most of their collaborations have been disappointments.

Is this their new way of chasing hits and relevance?

Troubles is an exception

One w/Mary J Blige was kinda stellar
This is the only instance I've ever seen on this forum of somebody enjoying that collaboration.

Cool, I dig being first.

Thinking of collaborations with other musicians/artists, I'm afraid single song collabs can't yield anything too interesting, since there's so much expectation about who they are working with, what each participant brings to the table, that there's scant chance of delivering something other than commonplace, or worse: caricature. One of the collaborators at least has to be either very hungry in a creative sense, or a genius.
Are any of these guys actual geniuses (not youtube commenter approved OMG geniuses, but real flaming giants of their vocation?)

Not sure why they do this...If it fails, it will restart the hate train against U2 and people will mock them endlessly. I'm 18 and I can already see my friends mocking this so much.

If it ends up a hit, Drake will get most of the credit, although it may help U2 get some relevance amongst the younger crowd. It's a really big risk for not a lot of reward.

Personally, I'd be interested in hearing it as a single track(hopefully not an album track) which is like "Drake featuring U2". I think Bono has the voice to do really well in a rap track as the chorus vocals, but I think that U2 may see themselves above that.
