Following a two-year hiatus, Wale has returned with his sixth studio album Wow… That’s Crazy.
The project includes standout tracks such as “Poledancer” featuring Megan Thee Stallion and “On Chill” with Jeremih, as well as other cameos from 6lack, Bryson Tiller, and Lil Durk. The album’s cover art depicts a shredded painting of Wale — a reference to 2018’s Banksy’s “Love Is in the Bin” — and was created in collaboration with Virginia-based painter Bryce Cobbs. Stream the full album below.
A few weeks ago, Wale called out his label on Twitter for releasing the album’s cover art and tracklist without his consent, as well as sending out the wrong photos to the press. The Nigerian-American rapper has always been vocal about his struggles and recently admitted to losing over $1 million due to legal issues.
I been an open book to y’all on here for better or worse .. I been through so much since my last project … I lost over an M on some legal stuff . I lost friends and almost my sanity . But y’all held this thing together … tonight I release this balloon ? ?
