I don't think it's on iTunes yet, so, I don't think you can download it, not 'til later. So, if you like the song, go 'head and request it.

He also promoted the song's debut via Twitter.
"CHANGE OF PLANS: IM GOING TO RELEASE MY SINGLE TOMORROW INSTEAD OF WEDS.," he wrote on Monday (September 28). "TELL EVERYBODY...

Swizz Beatz, the producer of the song, recently spoke on linking with Breezy and Weezy.
"[Chris has] got something to prove," Swizz said in an interview. "He worked on 60, 70 songs. He's just on fire. I told him, 'Listen, man, just stay focused on your music. They gonna throw shots at you. Time heals everything.' He has great support; his mother is amazing. I was really scoping out the situation, it could have been something I didn't want to be around, but I really got a great vibe. Honestly...The Wayne part is just nothing to talk about...He really showed his a** on this one. It's probably the best feature verse since the 'It's Me [B*tches]' remix. He really went in on the 'Transformer' joint." (MTV)
