About Daydreamin'

"Daydreamin'" is the third single taken from Lupe Fiasco's album Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor (2006) and features soul singer Jill Scott. The single is based on a sample of "Daydream in Blue" by I Monster, a song that samples "Daydream" by Gunter Kallmann Choir (which in itself is a cover, the original being written by The Wallace Collection). The song's lyrics are a critique of pop culture, especially of the current state of hip hop music. The song was released in the UK and US on September 11, 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 Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance. It was ranked the best rap song of 2006 by many publications. This song was also featured in an AT&T commercial during May 2008 for a Samsung phone.
