50 Cent has certainly stirred up buzz with his ongoing barrage of videos and song releases, but will that momentum translate into a blockbuster independent debut? For the G-Unit capo, it ain't even a question: he's headed for the Winner's Circle, and that's that. On yet another fresh single off the set, coming on the heels of last week's Irregular Heartbeat, Curtis reaffirms his commitment to victory at any cost, waxing ambitious over beatsmith Ky Miller's uplifting strings. Guordan Banks's tuneful hook vocals imbue the cut with plenty of pop appeal, but 50 faithful may lament the absence of his usual lyrical grit. Your verdict, readers? Animal Ambition is slated to drop Tuesday, June 3, via G-Unit Records/Caroline.
