Wale stays “Winning.”
Joined by Afro B and Sneakbo, Folarin unleashes his latest banger, “Stay Winning,” a dancehall-inspired tune ready for the dance floor.
“They don’t like me,” he raps. “I don’t like them / My Nikes go for like 10 / I might be with a lot of hoes / But the main goal: keep my BM in the Benz.”
It’s unclear where “Stay Winning” will land, but it could very well appear on Wale’s upcoming fifth album S.H.I.N.E. (Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy).
The new dad has been active in 2016. In June, he released his Summer on Sunset mixtape and last month, he dropped four new tracks. This month, he also released “One Reason (Flex)” featuring Eric Bellinger, another possible S.H.I.N.E. release. As if all of that wasn’t enough, Folarin is also reportedly executive producing the upcoming Maybach Music Group compilation, Self Made 4.
“Sonically, I always want to push myself as an artist and I think S.H.I.N.E. is a big example of me pushing myself and trying new things,” Wale told Complex. “My fifth album is a reason to celebrate, and a lot of the music I’ve been making is very chill. I’m singing—and I’m not singing to be the next Brian McKnight—I’m singing to enhance my songwriting ability and to evolve as an artist.”
