Weezy fans will be able to peep the rapper perform the track live this week.
The live world debut performance of "Prom Queen" will be on two AT&T Facebook Pages between 9-10 p.m. PST on Tuesday, Jan. 27 (12-1 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Jan. 28). He will perform it for the first time during a concert in San Diego. The performance will be streamed live to the AT&T FREEdom of Choice page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/freeforall) and also on the AT&T Mobile Music page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/mobilemusic). "I'm honored that AT&T selected me as the first artist to be a part of this historic live event," Lil Wayne said in a statement. (Press Release)
Despite the upcoming debut, "Prom Queen" was recently linked online.
"Prom Queen," the first track from US rapper Lil Wayne's forthcoming rock album Rebirth, has leaked onto the internet. The song can currently be heard on YouTube, though we suspect that it may be taken down fairly soon (which may actually be a blessing). Featuring heavy guitars and the currently omnipresent hard Auto-Tuned vocal sound that has become one of Lil Wayne's trademarks, "Prom Queen" doesn't exactly bode well for his forthcoming long-player.

The track is the first song from Weezy's new album.
Lil' Wayne announced the official release date and title of his next album: Rebirth is due April 7 -- and his publicist has confirmed to MTV News that it will be a rock album. The first single is called "Prom Queen" and will debut on the Internet right after a live stream of his concert in San Diego, California on January 27. (MTV)
