A couple of important things have happened since Wale released his last album, ‘Shine’. The rapper released three well-received, back-to-basics EPs in 2018—‘It’s Complicated’, ‘Self Promotion’ and ‘Free Lunch’—and signed a new record deal with Warner Records. Capping this run of form, he’s getting ready to release his sixth studio album, ‘Wow… That’s Crazy’.
Slated for release next Friday, October 11th, the album will contain 15 songs, including pre-released singles “Black Bonnie” with R&B singer Jacquees, “Poledancer” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, “Bgm”, and his Jeremih-assisted sleeper hit, “On Chill”. The star-studded project also contains guest appearances from Ari Lennox, 6lack, Boogie, Bryson Tiller, Lil Durk and Kelly Price.
Continuing with the album rollout, he recently dropped a new single, “Love & Loyalty” featuring Nigerian-born, Maryland-based singer Mannywellz. Produced by Sango, the song is bedded by vintage music guitars and vibrant drums.
With romance-inclined intentions, both artists perform a cheery set to convince their love interest of their unwavering commitment. Mannywellz sings the pre-chorus and part of the hook in his rustic tenor, while Wale delivers two self-assured rap verses and also sings part of the hook.
