Stone me...

So far, all the buzz about Randy Jackson's star-studded new album has been about Paula Abdul's not-entirely-terrible comeback single, Dance Like There's No Tomorrow.

But hidden further into the CD is a little gem by Joss Stone. Yes, you heard me right, a genuinely good song by Joss "only the crumbliest, flakiest pop star" Stone.

It sounds surprisingly like a Neptunes production, which is not entirely inappropriate given reports that she's currently working with their rocking proteges, Clipse.

Punctuated by cheap synth brass and a kicking drum loop, the song features Joss half-singing, half-rapping a verse that attacks Kanye West's misogynistic lyrics on Gold Digger.

It's just a shame that, when Jackson and Stone got round to writing the chorus, they chickened out of turning in their own hook and pinched Burt Bacharach's Walk On By.

Here it is in all its funky glory on that youtube (youtube).

And have you seen that flake advert? What a disaster...
