50 Cent talks about his current single “New Day” featuring Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys. 50 says the song was recorded a while back during a meet up with Dre and working on Detox. 50 says the song originally had a different hook and sound with a title “This Life Don’t Last Forever” but after negotiating with Dre the song turned into “New Day”.
“Dre can decide to work with whoever he wanna work with, but I remember that he gave me the biggest records of my career.” –50 Cent
50 also explains why Alicia Keys had her own version out with two verses. After playing “New Day” to Eminem, 50 says Em was feeling it so much that he wanted to be apart of it and he actually decided to help mix the record.
