"Day 'n' Nite" (listed as "Day 'n' Nite (Nightmare)" on the tracklist of Man on the Moon: The End of Day) is the debut single by alternative hip hop artist Kid Cudi. It was produced by Dot Da Genius and released February 2008 as a single, but was leaked in December 2007 and was featured by many blogs in mid-November 2008. It is also the first official single from his first official album Man on the Moon: The End of Day. The song has so far sold over 1,994,000 digital downloads in the United States.

Release

The single was released February 5, 2008, as a digital download via iTunes. It was released prior to Kid Cudi's signing to the GOOD Music label.

There are several remixes made for the song, by Pitbull, Jim Jones, Collie Buddz, Jermaine Dupri, Trey Songz, Styles P, Young Dro, K'naan, and others.

In Europe, the remix by the Italian DJ duo Crookers, is much more popular than the original. For example, it was song of the week on Belgian radio station Studio Brussel. A video was released for this version of the song that Cudi expressed displeasure with and it was released without his permission. He issued an explanation on his blog and asked that all bloggers remove the video from their blogs. The song's released on 12 January in UK as both download and physical. The Crookers remix debuted at number 2 in the UK singles chart, being beaten off the top spot by Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" having retained its position for 3 weeks. The Crookers remix is often played during his concerts, as a continuation of the original version. The remix won an award at the Beatport Music Awards of 2009 for 2007 tracks under the category Best Indie Dance / Nu Disco track of 2007.

There have also been three mashups made with the song by The Hood Internet. These are done with Cornelius (Another Day 'n' Nite), Bon Jovi (Prayer 'n' Nite}, and Sunn O))) (Day 'n' Aghartha).

The original version has currently peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S., and in Canada it reached #15 on the Canadian Hot 100.

Music video

There were two music videos made for Day 'n' Nite. The first, a pop art style video, was directed by the French director So-Me who previously worked on music videos with a similar style such as Justice's "D.A.N.C.E." and Kanye West's "Good Life". The pop art music video was produced by Imetrages and also features a brief appearance by Travis Barker. It features Cudi walking around Los Angelesmarker doing a variety of mundane activities such as getting a slice of pizza, grocery shopping, or visiting a bar, but the overlay of graphic colors on top of the actual video disguises or transforms the daily scene into one of fantasy. These fantasized versions of reality reference the film The Wizard of Oz and later manifest Kudi's desire to perform music; ultimately they play on the song's theme of the "lonely stoner" whose quotidian existence transforms because of his ability to "free his mind." The video features interior and exterior shots of Los Angeles bar, The Smogcutter (located on Virgil) and the somewhat iconic video game arcade, "Family Arcade" (located on Vermont in Hollywood). The second version was made specifically for The Crookers remix of the song. It showcases Cudi as an employee at a typical British corner shop called "Day 'n' Nite", seen with several girls dancing and then caressing him. A minor joke in the beginning is the manager character mispronouncing the name Buddy (Cudi's character). This may be a reference to the popular media confusion regarding the pronunciation of "Cudi".
