50 Cent isn’t proving to be the most reliable of guys. After the whole confusion surrounding his 5 (Murder By Numbers) project, which we only learned was a freebie a day prior to its release, and that we had yet more months of waiting for his official fifth studio album, Street King Immortal, Curtis finds himself slightly behind on schedule with his brand new single, “New Day” (it was supposed to hit iTunes on Tuesday, July 24th). However, today we have a 30-second snippet to tie us over.
Oddly enough, the beat is almost identical to Alicia Keys‘ single of the same name, which is produced by Swizz Beatz and set to land on her own upcoming album. I’m not sure how label politics will play out on that one, especially considering Fif’s version is intended for his LP, too.
Nevertheless, get a brief listen to how 50, Dr. Dre and Ms. Keys connect on “New Day” below, and look for the full single to drop within the next few days. Street King Immortal is slated for a release in November.
