Wyclef Jean will on Thursday (June 7) drop by the Dr. Pepper-sponsored bubble in which rock band Cartel is ensconced to collaborate on a new song, "Wasted." As with all of the activity going on inside the bubble, which is housed on New York's Pier 54, Jean's appearance can be viewed at DrPepperbubble.com.

Cartel will leave the bubble June 12 and celebrate with a concert on the pier. While inside, the group is writing and recording a new album, due July 24 via Epic. The Boys Choir of Harlem and a host of New York street musicians have already collaborated on some tracks intended for the project.

Life inside the bubble took a turn for the bizarre last night, when the front glass wall of the structure shattered due to heavy rain. No injuries were reported stemming from the incident, which was captured on video and can be viewed on the Dr. Pepper Bubble site.
