50 Cent drops quite possibly his most commercial record in a long time, as we head towards the era of Street King Immortal. His new single, “New Day” featuring Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre is the lead single from the forthcoming effort due in November – and it may just sound familiar to fans. That’s right, the Swizz Beatz produced record was released by Alicia Keys previously in the month as a solo record – but it looks like Fif and Dre snatched it up. Does it still have the same impact? Listen below..
50 Cent hasn’t charted on the Billboard Hot 100 as a lead artist since, 2010 – and hasn’t hit the Top 10 since 2007. This single, featuring Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre has all the firepower behind it to strike gold for Fif. Crossover appeal, commercials, massive expensive visual – I see it all for this single. It all depends how the people respond to it, especially after hearing Alicia Keys’ version of the single a couple of weeks ago which has gotten rave reviews from fans.
