According to Livesteez, Lil Wayne’s new song from his rock album has been leaked onto the net, so he released it today on his Myspace page:
The self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” is ready to storm the Internet with his new single, which will debut today on MySpace and then be performed live on Facebook on Wednesday. Despite being leaked to the internet early, Lil Wayne is set to unveil “Prom Queen,” the first single from his April album Rebirth, on his MySpace page Tuesday, marking the first new material from Wayne since his mega-selling Tha Carter III shattered all expectations in 2008. Once “Queen”…… is up for a day, Facebook will live stream Wayne’s concert in San Diego, which will be viewable live on AT&T’s FREEdom of Choice and Mobile Music Facebook pages at 9:40 p.m. PT Jan. 28. “We have streamed festivals and shows in the past, but this is the first time AT&T will stream a live performance for our Facebook pages,” AT&T spokesperson Heather Buffington told Billboard.com. According to Buffington, AT&T customers downloaded Lil Wayne ringtones more than any other artist last year. He’s also the most popular artist with a Facebook page, she said. Contrary to previous reports that said the forthcoming Universal/Cash Money album would be titled Tha Carter IV, the rock-inspired Rebirth will not be the next installment in “Tha Carter” series or related to any previous album that Lil Wayne has released, according to his publicist. Wayne’s move to a rock ‘n’ roll sound isn’t surprising, considering that he often plays guitar at his concerts and has aligned himself with rock artist Kevin Rudolf. He appears on the latter’s debut single, “Let It Rock,” which recently peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. “I might want to hear a certain sound like Prince, but I can’t pay him to play it. So, I picked up a guitar and learned how to play it,” Wayne told Billboard last year. “(It) goes to show you the only thing that can’t be done is what you don’t want to do.” Lil Wayne will perform Feb. 8 at the Grammy Awards.
We hear a lot of vocoder crooning going on with a band, and it sounds like he is high as hell off that syrup. Take a listen to his “Rock Steez”.
What do y’all think?
