Wale has definitely been giving us some holiday treats lately with songs like “Groundhog Day” and “Folarin Like“. Today we get yet another one with the new track “Black is Gold“.
The song samples D’Angelo‘s “Lady” and features Wale rhyming about the beauty and grace that can be found in black women. He specifically talks to Viola Davis, Justine Skye, SZA, and even “auntie” Michelle Obama. Think what you want about Wale, but this is an anthem fit for all black queens.
Wale’s latest releases all come in preparation for his new album S.H.I.N.E., which is set for release in early 2017. If these songs prove to be a proper appetizer, we may be looking at his best project in quite a long time. Listen to “Black is Gold” below!
