    Back in 1999, Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas and legendary guitarist Carlos Santana changed the world forever with their hit song Smooth, and they've announced that there's a sequel on the way.

    In case you forgot, Smooth may have been one of the biggest single contributors to global warming, due to the opening lyric referring to it being a "hot one". In many ways, it was a sign of what was to come for the world.

    The track is the best-selling single of the last 20 years, and the second biggest-selling single of all time. It's no surprise, therefore, that the pair have decided to work together. Hopefully, though, this track has a bit of an icier twist. We're not sure we can handle any more heat.

    Speaking about the track on Twitter, Santana says, "Move came about was very much like how Smooth happened. It was like divine intelligence behind the scenes, and I just knew I had to record it with Rob.

    "The song is about awakening your molecules. Ignite and activate yourself — you know, move. When Rob and I work together, we have a sound that’s splendiferous.”

    We can't wait to hear Move, and it's set to feature on Santana's new album Blessings And Miracles, out on October 15. In many ways, this is a blessing and a miracle - and what we've been waiting for all these years. Get reacquainted with Smooth below and get set for more heat from the pair.
