According to Wale, "Shine" is dropping this Friday or so he hopes.
On Wednesday night, Wale caught up with Genius for a break down analysis of his forthcoming album Shine, which is supposed to be dropping May 5th. During his sit-down with Rob Markman, the MMG rapper discussed the tracklist, talked about stories behind the songs and even revealed a couple producers in the process, including Don Cannon ("Colombia Heights") & No Credit ("Mathematics").
However, what people are talking about the most from the event is the album's new release date, which will now reportedly be this Friday, April 28th instead. “Ima put my album out on Friday yo” Wale says on the mic. However, following the event, Wale might've spoke too early & took to Instagram to try and get Atlantic on the same boat (which he has since deleted).
In addition to that though, people are also talking about the new song Wale debuted with DJ Sam Sneak called “Shine Season,” which finds Wale referencing conservative political commentator Tomi Lauren once again. “Tomi I Lahren, I aint ready for you/All the Beckys want an Uncle Tom Sawyer/Race draft first pick/John Lennon for Don Lemon,” he rapped.
Check out both a teaser of the record “Shine Season” & his release date announcement (below). We'll keep you posted on further updates regarding's Friday's release. Let's hope it sticks.
