Wale Releases 4 new songs!

The first, titled “New Phone,” finds the D.C. native rapping and singing over a lush beat that wouldn’t sound out of place on an early Drake album. “So many years gone by, new phone, who’s this?” he sings, over atmospheric synths and barely-there drums.

On “Illuminate” featuring Phil Ade, Wale lets loose over uptempo boom-bap production. “Blue moon, blue moon, you illuminate for the world,” he sings on the chorus.
