50 Cent has recently released his new single “New Day” with supporting maintenance of Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre. Alicia Keys has released a few weeks ago, the same single. Confused?. In the interview with XXLMAG says 50cent as is happening. He also talks about his upcoming album “Immortal King Street” and the more you see collaborations below …
Switching gears again, this time to the music, how does it work out where you and Alicia Keys both have singles called “New Day” in such close proximity and your version has the same instrumental and her same hook as her earlier release?
The actual track was produced originally for [Dr. Dre's album] The Detox. I was actually recording with Dre for his record and when he played it, it had a chorus that was a little darker. When he sent it to her, Alicia sent it back with “New Day” and it had additional strings on it. He wasn’t sure that he wanted to use it because of creatively where he was at on his project. I was like, “I can use that” because it would be the bright side of what I’m offering in my body of work. He was like, “Okay, take it then.” Obviously, it was a hit. They’re sitting on it and after a while, she recorded additional verses and leaked the record.
With your upcoming album, Street King Immortal, what are some collaborations that might throw people for a loop?
I can’t offer what collaborations I’ll be actually having, but I want to say is the actual project itself was the longest body of work I had an opportunity to work on besides Get Rich or Die Tryin’. It feels like the first step is working real well as far as “New Day” is concerned. As far as what’s next, they’re gonna see what I have next. I’m not gonna wait a long time. You’re gonna hear new stuff from me.
