On the heels of 'Stronger', Kanye West is having 'Good Life' as the third single off studio album 'Graduation'. The singer performed the full version of the song for the first time in an event to honor music mogul Quincy Jones on July 28.

'Good Life' is a mid-tempo featuring T-Pain. Part of it samples on Michael Jackson's 1983 hit 'P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)'. The song was actually premiered live during a concert in Manchester, England on July 2 but only to a portion of it. A video is now prepared to be released but no official date has been announced yet.

'Graduation', Kanye's third studio album, will be released September 11, the same day 50 Cent drops his much delayed 'Curtis'. A chart battle is expected but both would not change the date. "I'd rather come out on a day like that, up against 50 where people are excited about going to the stores and it's an event and people talk about it and be #2 on that day rather than come out and be #1 on a day nobody cares about," Kanye said.
