Ed Sheeran Lupe Fiasco 'Old School Love' Single Release Date & Cover Art Now Available
The "Superstar" rapper Lupe Fiasco releases his new single "Old School Love," which features London-based singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran.
"1st single #OldSchoolLove ft. @EdSheeran drops this Monday, October 14th! @iTunesMusic #TetsuoAndYouth," he writes on his Twitter to announce the release of the new song.
The track features a piano riff from Kanye West's "Family Business" from his 2004 debut album, "The College Dropout." The song starts with Ed Sheeran's smooth intro, "Give me your old school love right now / You know that only you and me alone..." The UK singer continues, "As long as I'm here / As long as you love me / Give me that old school love right now."
In February, Sheeran mentioned that he was working in the studio with Lupe Fiasco.
"We have the same A&R in America and... he just gave me about seven beats and said write choruses to all of these beats. Lupe loved one of them and is going to hop on it. I'm a massive Lupe Fiasco fan, so it's cool."
Last week, the Chicago rapper announced his "Tetsuo & Youth Tour," which is slated to begin on November 2 in Atlanta, Georgia. It is set to include 32 dates and is scheduled to end on December 15 in Baltimore, Maryland.
Lupe Fiasco's new single "Old School Love" is likely to be included on his forthcoming fifth studio album, "Tetsuo And Youth." The album doesn't have a release date yet. Tetsuo is a reference to 1989's Japanese film "Tetsuo: The Iron Man."
