Pusha T shares new single 'Diet Coke'

@jackwhatley89

Having recently suggested that a follow up to his 2018 album Daytona was on the way, Pusha T has released a brand new single with collaboration from Kanye West and 88-Keys.

The rapper’s third studio album arrived back in 2018, and his audience has been eagerly awaiting more material ever since, but Pusha has kept his cards close to his chest. However, T has finally released a brand new track and its vintage hip hop.

There’s a good reason that the song has such a vintage polish and that’s because 88-Keys came up with a rough version of the beat almost 18 years ago as part of an interlude for his tape ‘The Makings of Crack Cocaine’.

“Imaginary players ain’t been coached right / Master recipes under stove lights,” Push raps with help from Kanye West who is cited as a co-writer. “The number on this jersey is the quote price / You ordered Diet Coke, that’s a joke, right?”

It’s a reference Push has made for, once rapping during his time with Clipse on ‘Hello New World’: “Baggin’ up grams at the Hyatt, though / The news called it crack, I called it Diet Coke.”

Many fans have got extremely excited over the song thanks to West’s contribution. The song feels as close to Ye’s earliest work as ever and suggests that maybe the Donda rapper will return to his soulful roots.
