Already released by Alicia Keys with the same title, 50 Cent now offers fans his version of “New Day” featuring Keys and Dr. Dre. The track is off of 50’s upcoming Street King Immortal album, due in November.
The chorus and beat remains the same on the Dre-produced cut, with the addition of verses from 50 Cent and Dr. Dre. “I woke up this morning thinking ’bout the old me. When I was feeling like, Miller Light and Olde E. But now I ride on some conscious sh--. I’m getting bread while I toast to my accomplishments." raps Dre in the opening verse. 50 cent later jumps in spitting, “I’m built for it, see I’m better under pressure. I react like a maniac when I’m coming to get ya. I got to win, Em’ watch and Dre watch and my son watching. F--- that, losing ain't an option.”
