The superb “Diet Coke” got another visual interpretation on Thursday night by way of a Late Show performance.
Pusha-T brought the endlessly replayable single to Stephen Colbert’s show, complete with a stage fittingly designed to give viewers the experience of watching the recent NIGO collaborator perform in the middle of a snow storm.
Catch the expectedly commanding performance in full above. Last month, an official video for the 88-Keys and Ye-produced song was released. Revisit that experience, directed by Omar Jones and Onda (and co-starring Ye himself), below.
For now, there’s still no confirmed release date for King Push’s first new album since his widely acclaimed 2018 opus Daytona. In a recent interview on Complex’s 360 With Speedy Morman series, Pusha was asked if he had a “bold prediction” to share regarding the upcoming album.
“There’s no album that’s better than mine this year, 1000 percent. … I really impressed myself with it,” Pusha told Speedy during their 40-minute conversation, adding that he has successfully crafted what is also the “hardest and best” album of 2022.
“Juxtapose the things I’ve been doing, it’s kind of weird,” he said at the time. “I’m kind of a sicko to even be able to think like this.”
NIGO also has a new album on the way, having recruited Pusha-T for its latest advance cut, “Hear Me Clearly.” The latest off I Know NIGO features production from BoogzDaBeast, Ye, Luca Starz, and ThaMyind. Below, see the official lyric video.
