Wale Puts His Own Twist on H.E.R.’s “Every Kind of Way”
Ever since Wale left Atlantic Records earlier this year, he seems to have discovered some newfound creative inspiration in the booth. The Every Blue Moon artist dropped off another remix (April 28) by putting his own spin on H.E.R.'s 2017 song "Every Kind of Way."
The 33-year-old utilizes an extended bristling verse to open the DJ Camper-produced record from a more male-centric perspective. He connects references to Cardi B's "Be Careful" and Drake's "God's Plan" early on in his stream of consciousness. "She told me be careful like Cardi B/But my cardio gotten smaller/Small like a car don't got wings/God's Plan," Wale rhymes.
The D.C. native goes on to compare Insecure's Issa Rae with former adult entertainment star Lisa Ann to show a diverse spectrum of the world's women. "Sophisticated or the ratchets/I can't ignore both/The Issa Raes and Lisa Anns/Its insecure now/I can see your plans for us/Cupid got his aiming scoped," he raps.
The Ambition artist has kept busy for much of 2018, including dabbling in acting during an appearance in HBO's Crashing as an aspiring rapper. He also hit fans with a surprise release of his 4-track EP It's Complicated in March. The project only saw one feature with the Jacquees-assisted "Black Bonnie." Wale seems to be getting back to his former self, so hopefully more new music will be on the way soon.
