Jeezy just isn't stopping. A day after releasing a surprise EP in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, Pastor Young is back to his regularly scheduled Sunday Services, continuing to heighten the anticipation for his upcoming album, Church in These Streets. Last week, Jeezy shared the album artwork as well as a behind-the-scenes preview of the video to the title track. Tonight, he's dropped off another single, "Sweet Life," featuring Janelle Monae.
"Sweet Life" is another inspirational effort from Jeezy, as he documents how his persistence has shaped his career and his life. He continues to imagine himself as the "ghetto prophet," and his message becomes more resonant when combined with Monae's background vocals. The track is produced by 1017 Records-affiliated producer C4.
Church in These Streets arrives on November 13. Where does "Sweet Life" rank among the album's previous singles?
I know you thought I wasn't lookin', but I was payin' attention
No you can't see through my shades, just know I'm smilin' inside
It's like the old me deceased, I'm kinda glad that I died
It's that that new and improved, it's that I'm in the mood
You know he don't like to lose, so why y'all fuckin' with dude?
