Wale Enlists Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, & Juicy J for ‘The Gifted’

Wale

Wale is bringing some major star power to his third album The Gifted. The Maybach Music rapper has called on superstars including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa, and more.

During a private listening for journalists in New York last week, the D.C. native previewed some of the star-studded follow-up to 2011’s Ambition.

Rihanna guests on the remix to the first single “Bad.” “Bad girls always end up unapologetic,” raps Wale, while Rihanna replaces Tiara Thomas on the hook. “She injects this crazy/beautiful combination of sadness and sexiness that only Rih can do,” writes Rolling Stone.

Wale heads to the strip club on “Clappers” featuring Nicki Minaj and Juicy J. Young Money’s First Lady plays the role of a pimp on the bouncy banger, which samples E.U.’s “Da Butt.”

On “Rotation,” Wale boasts with his friends 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa. “Made millions with Shawn Corey,” raps the Roc Nation-managed MC in reference to Jay-Z. “I won’t be on til I see Sean Combs.”

Other collaborations include Meek Mill (“Heaven in the Afternoon”), YG and Dom Kennedy (“Hella”), and Rick Ross. The Gifted is due June 25.

    J. Cole’s gonna be on this too! Can’t wait for that bc their previous collabs, “Bad Girls Club” & “You Got It” were fire. Two of the best lyricists in the game.

    @Ciara QUEEN Harris, wale and Rihanna are more relevant than Ciara though. You have no place to call anyone a flop. Stop throwing stones when your ass lives in a glass house.

    Dats fucked up to replace it with rihanna tho not like anyones gonna care for that shit but anyway album looks like it shoild be ok. Im sure nicki killed the song like always and about the female rapper thing the upcoming ones r all differe t but lack any type of substance. Iggy, diamond r wack eve made a comeback but they album is a flop with only 2 notable songs and as for azealia banks she the only one who I can see successful however shes a UK person so idk how much of her we will get in the U.S.
