Today (April 6th), Wale took to Instagram to get his fans ready for his fifth studio album, Shine. Although his fans have been patiently waiting for what seems like forever now, it’s finally time for the ‘PYT’ artist to drop some new heat.
Not only did Wale just release a new track with Travis Scott, ‘Fish n Grits’, but a few familiar songs will be on the LP as well. On the 14 song tracklist, we have heard ‘My PYT’, ‘Running Back’, and ‘Fashion Week’. G-Easy, Lil Tunechi, Travis Scott, and Chris Brown are a few artists who have features on the project, making this a well-rounded album as a whole.
It is a surprise though that both Rick Ross and Meek are absent on the list considering that they are label mates with the ‘Groundhog Day’ rapper, but he did include an unexpected collaboration. His daughter will be featured on the last track, ‘Smile’, alongside Phil Ade.
He already has videos for ‘My PYT’ and ‘Running Back’ which you can watch below. This will be Wale’s most recent project since his 2015 release of ‘The Album About Nothing’. The album is available for presale in New Zeland and will be released May 5th.
