50 Cent – New Day ft. Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys (Full)

50 Cent takes Alicia Keys’ recent single “New Day” and makes it his own with help from two longtime collaborators. Serving as the lead single to his next major label LP, “Street King Immortal”, 50′s version includes a verse from Dr. Dre and was mixed by the one and only Eminem. Dre’s production is on point, but I’m unsure whether the idea of recycling an already successful single is the right move (it’s actually a little strange to see). Overall though, the record could potentially provide much needed positive momentum for the G-Unit general both commercially and statistically. After all, both 50 AND Jimmy Iovine proclaimed “Street King Immortal” will best the legendary “Get Rich Or Die Tryin'”.

Surprisingly enough, this isn’t Keys’ first time lending a vocal for virtually two versions of the same single – 2009′s “Empire State Of Mind” appeared on Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint 3”, then was released as a “broken down” version on Keys’ “The Element Of Freedom”. Peep the single below.
