Rapper Twista will return Oct. 4 with a new Atlantic album, "The Day After." The 14-track set is led by first single "Girl Tonite" featuring Trey Songz. The cut jumps 36-55 in its fourth week on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and can be sampled on Twista's official Web site.

Although the track list is still taking shape, "The Day After" will also feature guest appearances from Jamie Foxx, the Neptunes' Pharrell Williams and Pitbull. Production was supplied by the Neptunes, Scott Storch, Timbaland, David Banner, Toxic and Cuzo.

"The Day After" is the follow-up to Twista's 2004 breakthrough, "Kamikaze," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.81 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It spawned the single "Slow Jams," which was named ASCAP's No. 1 most played R&B song of 2004. The cut, which featured Foxx and Kanye West, topped out at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
