Wale fans are about to be blessed with a brand new album from the MMG superstar, and he is finally giving an update on its status. The DMV rapper has been working on his next project, SHINE, for the past 15 months, which will follow in the footsteps of his Seinfeld-themed The Album About Nothing project from 2015, as well as his Summer on Sunset mixtape from last summer.
Since announcing his fifth album in 2016, Wale has achieved a level of success beyond rap music: becoming a father for the very first time. That level of joy is proudly displayed throughout his Instagram page, and will likely be on display on his forthcoming album SHINE.
Formally announcing its release on May 5th, Wale will round up the likes of Major Lazer, Travi$ Scott, Lil Wayne (on “Running Back“), J. Balvin, Davido, Chris Brown and more. Even his daughter, Zyla Moon, appears on the album’s closing track as well.
Here is the tracklist
Scarface Rozay Gotti
My Love f. Major Lazer, WizKid & Dua Lipa
Colombia Heights (Te Llamo) f. J Balvin
Fine Girl f. Davido & Olamide
Heaven on Earth f. Chris Brown
Smile f. Phil Adé & Zyla Moon
He also debuted “Fish n Grits” with Travi$ Scott, as well.
