The forthcoming Wale album, SHiNE, is all over the map.
Between “Running Back,” “Fish ‘N’ Grits” and “My PYT,” which are all quality jams, it’s hard to get a feel for what SHiNE will sound like. Further complicating things is today’s new Wale banger, “Fashion Week” featuring G-Eazy.
Over a staccato slapping beat, Wale and G-Eazy look positively dapper as they share their tales of seduction.
The minimalist-but-stylized video showcases the hyperkinetic dancers in between the strong contrast of light-tube frames. Again, while Wale sounds comfortable on the beat and this feels like it could be his new album’s big inescapable hit, in the back of our minds we’re kind of perplexed as to how or where this will fit on SHiNE.
SHiNE is also set to feature Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Major Lazer and Wale’s daughter Zyla Moon.
