[Listen] Lupe Fiasco - "Airplanes" (Demo) Feat. Hayley Williams

So here's the original version of B.o.B's hit track "Airplanes" featuring Paramore's Hayley Williams which was originally intended for Lupe Fiasco's LASERS. Check out the story behind track from Lupe below:

“I was actually working on a session in Chung King [Studios], and [Atlantic Records chairman] Craig Kallman called me during that session with that particular track, to work on it for Lupe Fiasco,” Jonsin told MTV News. “I told Craig, ‘I like the song a lot. It’s a smash and could be somebody’s single. But it’s not Lupe’s record. I need this record for B.o.B. Please give this record to B.o.B.’ I guess they went through whoever they went through, convinced whoever they needed to, and it got to B.o.B.”

This isn't the first time B.o.B has got a hit single from his labelmate. The orginal version of "Nothin on You" with Bruno Mars was also originally intended for Lupe but was later given to Bobby Ray as his first single off his debut album. Man, it just seems like the original LASERS album woulda destroyed the released product. Let us know what you guys think of this alternate version in the comments below.
