Lupe Fiasco releases "Daydreamin'" single
"Daydreamin'" is the Grammy Award–winning third single taken from Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor album and features soul singer Jill Scott and music from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, the Danse de Cygnes.
The single is based around a sample of "Daydream in Blue" by I Monster, a song that heavily samples "Daydream" by Gunter Kallman Choir (which in itself is a cover, the original being written by The Wallace Collection).
The song was released in the UK on 11 September 2006; however, a download-only version was available one week earlier and charted at #46 (without any physical sales).
In 2008 Daydreamin' won the Grammy for Best Urban/Alternative Performance.
This song is also featured in an AT&T commercial for a Samsung phone.
In 2009, the song was picked for the indents of Australian television station, Network Ten.
