Wale has never been this open and bright with his music and it’s a great thing to see. Although he’s always worn his heart on his sleeve and his emotions on his social media, this is a different type of open. Wale is freer than he’s ever been (s/o to 6LACK) and it has been radiating since he released Summer on Sunset.
Whereas the music itself from SHINE and the aforementioned project may not completely translate over to sales or increased stardom, you can tell the artist is in a better place. The clearest example is the visual representation of his music.
Today’s entry into that thesis is the animated lyric video for “My Love” featuring Major Lazer, WizKid and Dua Lipa. If you can’t find some happiness while watching this you might just be a grinch. Dream on.
