Listen to Wale’s Four New Songs
Wale teamed up with Harry Fraud for four new tracks, the first of which is "Know Me," featuring Skeme. The MMG signee raps about keeping it real no matter what. Press play on "Know Me" above.
Next up is the Phil Ade-assisted "Illuminate." This track finds the two DMV natives bouncing off one another over a real laid back beat. Wale even sings a little bit on the hook as he chants to the blue moon. "Blue moon/Blue moon/Will you illuminate and make moves?/Will you illuminate for the world?/Faith is in you," he croons. Take a listen to "Illuminate" above.
Wale stands alone on "New Phone." This song is definitely relatable. It's about the people who've disappeared over the years but pop up later as if everything is all good. "So many hearts can't mend/So many thoughts again and again/So many years gone by/So many friends is in the wind/So many niggas is really pretend/So many women that think they're the shit/As I let the years go by/New phone, who is this?," he sings over the mellow hook. Check "New Phone" out above.
Last up is "Not On Drugs (Remix)" featuring Tove Lo. The track is an eccentric blend of the two artists' genres. Wale keeps his raspy rhyming style, while Tove Lo's high pitched voice is amplified by Fraud's upbeat tempo. The woman he's rhyming about may seem lit, but she's simply high on love. Take a listen to the "Not on Drugs (Remix)" above.
