The Game's The R.E.D. Album has been delayed many times over, so it seems like a miracle that it's finally set to hit stores on August 23rd. The Los Angeles rapper will herald the release of the long-awaited record by performing on this evening's episode of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Given that The R.E.D. Album is overflowing with guest stars, it's pretty likely that he won't hit the stage alone, so don't be too surprised if Lil Wayne turns up for their new single "Red Nation."

Trace Adkins - Piers Morgan, CNN 9:00 p.m.

Keb Mo - Conan, TBS 11:00 p.m.

The Game - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 p.m.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
