Here’s an interesting one.

Wyclef Jean has recorded a new song he says was inspired by fashion designer-athlete, Venus Williams.

The Haitian-born Grammy Award-winning musician/producer/social activist also wrote the song, “Venus (I’m Ready).”

He says he’s inspired by the spirit, character and prowess of the American tennis champion, who recently took home her third Olympic gold medal (with her sister Serena) in the women’s doubles match at the Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

“Venus (I’m Ready)” is slated to premiere as Venus Williams’ theme music during the 2008 US Open tennis tournament in Flushing, Queens, New York, running from August 25 through September 7.
