Mark my words. This song will be huge and Wale will be a household name by year’s end.
But who is Wale, you ask?
“Chillin” is the first single from Wale’s debut album, Attention: Deficit, due in the Summer. And this song will surely be a smash.
The song samples “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” and features Lady Gaga sounding a lot like M.I.A. and Santigold with a typical hip-hip club synth beat.
But this isn’t typical Wale. The 24-year-old Washington, D.C. native made notable noise beyond the mainstream radar for go-go influence in his music, his Seinfeld-themed Mixtape About Nothing, and his guest appearance on The Roots’ “Rising Up.”
Attention: Deficit is rumored to feature production work from Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Just Blaze, 9th Wonder, Justice, Sean C. & LV, and Travis Barker.
Wale will be performing live Thursday, March 26 at The Florida Room in the Delano hotel in Miami Beach. Event details can be found here.
