Smokey Robinson Jr will release an album made up of collaborations with some of his greatest friends in music.

Smokey & Friends is set for release in the USA on August 19.

One of the songs on the album is a duet with a legendary songstress in her own right, Mary J Blige.

On Smokey & Friends, Robinson revisits classics from his Motown catalogue, including "My Girl," "Tears of a Clown," and "Ooh, Baby, Baby."

The album is also set to feature artists like Cee-lo, Miguel, Aloe Blacc, and Jessie J. “,” the singer told Essence magazine.

“I would just like the younger listeners to take away that somebody who is their era or in the genre of music that they like is singing with me and they’re going to be curious as to why this particular person wanted to sing with me if they don’t know who I am.”
