Pusha T just released a new song “Diet Coke” on all major music platforms. The song, which was cowritten by Kanye West and produced by 88-Keys, is likely to appear on the rapper’s follow-up album to 2018’s Daytona.
The tune, which features Kanye West and 88-Keys on production—88 said that he “created that beat 18 years ago”—arrives only hours after Pusha’s management and Victor Victor Worldwide founder/CEO Steven Victor teased the song by tweeting a snippet from the music video, which will be released on Tuesday. Sterling Ruby created the artwork for the “Diet Coke” cover.
Pusha T makes a lighthearted reference to the street coke rather than the soft drink in the song. Pusha T raps, “Imaginary players they may train right/Master recipes beneath cooking lights.” “The quote price is the number on his jersey/You ordered Diet Coke, right?/Everyone gets it off the boat, right?/But only I can actually have a snow fight.”
Following the preview, King Push took to Twitter to reveal additional insights, including, “Ye and 88 produced for sure.” “Well, you know, Pusha-T raps about more.”
“The video was directed by Omar Jones,” he said. It’ll be released tomorrow,” he said, praising Mike Dean for his contribution.
“As far as I’m concerned, who’s the best?” the song asks, referring to Kanye. Yezos and I.” Pusha’s nickname for Ye is Yezos, of course. Fat Joe’s voice is also sampled in the song, including his catchphrase, “Yesterday’s price is not today’s price.”

In a recent interview with timesread.com, the rapper claimed, “The album of the motherfucking year is coming.” “It takes a long time to make a Pusha T record. This crap takes a long time to put together, but once it does, there’s nothing wrong with it.
That’s something we’re putting on everything. It makes no difference to me what they say or how they act. None of it matters to me, regardless of how popular they become. There’s nothing wrong with it. “Man, I’m on some one-hundred percent rap superhero crap.”
Pusha T’s record is arriving “sooner than you think,” according to veteran music business executive Steven Victor, who added that they were “putting the finishing touches on Pusha’s album.” Victor also teased a black-and-white preview of what appears to be the video for the song, which will premiere on Tuesday at 12:00 EST.
Steven Victor verified Pusha-T is still with Ye’s G.O.O.D. Music in a recent interview with timesread.com, saying that his forthcoming album would complete his Def Jam contract.
“We could re-sign with Def Jam,” Victor added, “but I’m simply stating he completed his contract requirement.” “He could re-sign with Def Jam, but the main thing is that he’s still with Kanye regardless of where his next endeavours take him.” Kanye will be there.”
Steven Victor promised Pusha’s “record is coming sooner than you think” in another interview with Complex last month, stating “the album of the motherfucking year is coming.”
“This period of Push is perhaps the most casual and competitive,” Pusha continued. I take the game so lightly now that I’ve realised how unique I am. On the street rap tip, I know nobody is going to bother me. It’s just not going to happen. I simply want them to comprehend my foundation, and nobody’s messing with me when it comes to my foundation.”
Fans are excited to hear what Pusha-T has planned for his follow-up to 2018’s Daytona. For the time being, you may listen to “Diet Coke” on YouTube, Apple Music, and Spotify.
