It’s been a long time in the making, since January of 2016 to be exact when we first caught wind of the album’s title, but after a couple setbacks & delays Wale’s highly anticipated SHINE album has finally arrived.

Containing 14 tracks in total, the follow up to 2015’s The All About Nothing album features guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Dua Lipa, G-Eazy, Phil Ade, Wizkid, J Balvin, and even his baby daughter Zyla, who appears on the outro “Smile.” Meanwhile, production comes from the likes of Mike Dean, Cool & Dre, Nez & Rio, The Dope Boyz, Spinz Beats Inc, Christian Rich, Pro Reese, and more.

“So basically, with this album, I challenged myself as a writer. I tried to step outside of my comfort zone and do things that I felt good about… this album, I don’t care about numbers, I don’t care about nothing, I just care about my tour and my fans” he says. The tour he’s referring to is his upcoming "Shine" Tour, which kicks off next Friday, May 5th in Atlanta, Georgia (peep dates here).

Led by the singles “My PYT” & “Running Back,” fans can now stream the album in its entirety via Apple Music (below). Don’t forget to show your support on iTunes while you’re at it.
