Pusha T gives a shout-out to Kanye West on 'Diet Coke'
While announcing the release of the song, Pusha T also revealed that he will be dropping the official music video soon- the snippet of which was already shared on his social media accounts. Kanye West too makes an appearance in the visuals but sadly did not drop a verse on the new banger. The track sees Pusha rapping, “Imaginary players ain't been coached right/ Master recipes under stove lights/ The number on this jersey is the quote price/ You ordered Diet Coke, that's a joke, right?”
While giving a shout-out to Kanye, Pusha raps, “Wish me luck, see green like Don Bishop/ The ones you trust don't change like them jeans you tuck/ Far as I'm concerned, who's the best? Me and Yezos/ Wash, then dry, said, "Give me all of mine in pesos". Yezos is Ye’s nickname given by Pusha. The track ‘Diet Coke’ might prove to be the lead single off his latest album. The song also samples Fat Joe’s voice, including his popular phrase, “Yesterday’s price is not today’s price.” Pusha T dropped his last album called ‘Daytona’ in 2018 that included hits like ‘What Would Meek Do?’ and ‘The Games We Play’. The album peaked at number three on the US Billboard 200 chart. Speaking of his new album in October 2021, the ‘Runaway’ hitmaker told Billboard that he had topped ‘Daytona’ 1000 percent for sure.
