Queen Latifah To Remake "U.N.I.T.Y." With Likes Of MC Lyte, Lady Of Rage

The Flavor Unit honcho will take her Grammy Award-winning song and remix it 10 times in conjunction with Covergirl to inspire new minds.

One of emcee-turned-actress Queen Latifah's best known hits is "U.N.I.T.Y." The song appeared on Latifah's 1993 album, Black Reign, and after being released as a single early in 1994, won the Grammy Award for "Best Solo Rap Performance" the following year. Seventeen years removed from the song, the New Jersey star is using her Covergirl platform to update the song, 10 times, with a host of female emcees.

DailyVenusDiva.com reports that Queen Latifah has begun her 10-part series to show the song's relevance today, pushing for unity within the community and among women. The weekly series will feature acts new and old alike, with the premiere "U.N.I.T.Y. (Remix)" featuring contemporaries MC Lyte and Lady Of Rage.

The song editions can be heard on the Covergirl Facebook page (Facebook.com/Covergirl).

    Queen Latifah, I've been a fan of yours for 21 years. Hell, I am not ashamed I had a crush on you. I was 19, forgive me. But really, a cover of "U.N.I.T.Y."? Can I have access to your multi-tracks so I can do remixes of songs from your first album, or become an executive producer for a remix project so I could get other producers to do that? I would prefer to hear that than a new "U.N.I.T.Y."? I'm not joking about a remix project either. Let's do this.
