The long awaited visuals for Wale’s lead single have finally leaked and I think the clip came out pretty nice. Definitely crisp and I dig the track, though the blatant M.I.A. swagger jacking from GaGa’s hook still seems a little weird to me. I’m sure Cool & Dre or someone ran it by M.I.A., but I’d be curious to hear what she feels about the hook.
Anyway, hopefully this single will catch on and Wale can join the ranks of Asher, Cudi, and Drake as the only new cats to actually get a crossover hit. One of my old workplaces, KIIS in LA, has already added it so that’s a great sign.
Here’s another new video from Wale and Rik Cordero for “Family Affair” while we’re at it:
