Weird collaboration of the week: Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige teaming up on a Bryan Adams tune.
"Never Gonna Break My Faith" is the lead single from the soundtrack album for "Bobby," Emilio Estevez's film about the 1968 assassination of Robert Kennedy. The movie opens nationwide on Thanksgiving day; the album arrives in stores Nov. 21. Another potentially intriguing track (and we use that adjective in the most hopeful and diplomatic spirit) is Demi Moore's remake of "Louie Louie." Watch the trailer and hear the single here.
