Published Dec 05, 2012Back in the summer, 50 Cent premiered "New Day," the Alicia Keys- and Dr. Dre-assisted first single off the rapper's upcoming Street King Immortal. While he aimed to have the album out by November, considering the set has yet to hit retailers, it's clear that the record's been delayed. On the plus side, 50 Cent has announced a number of notable guests that have now been added to the LP.
Speaking with Billboard, the hip-hop mogul confirmed that R&B singers Chris Brown, Ne-Yo and Trey Songz will figure on the album, though 50 Cent didn't deliver the details on exactly where they'll appear. He also added that Eminem threw down some words during recording sessions in Detroit for a song "that was really cool and stood out." This marks the second appearance from Marshall Mathers on Fiddy's impending LP, following the previously teased "My Life" single, which also features Maroon 5's Adam Levine.
While we're taking this with a grain of salt, 50 Cent has confirmed that the album's new launch date is February 26, and it will arrive via Interscope.
"It's ready now," he said. "I can't wait for people to get a chance to actually hear it."
