Wale Cures ADD with Debut Album

Wale will grab music listeners’ undivided attention when he releases his debut album Attention: Deficit (Allido/Interscope) this September.

The 24-year-old D.C. native’s much-buzzed-about project has an official release date of Sept. 22. He introduces the album with the first single “Chillin'” featuring Lady GaGa, which is gaining spins on Rhythmic Radio.

“I kind of represent the show and the songmanship and I feel like there’s an attention span. Consumers have grown very stingy with their attention span and that’s what the album reflects,” Wale tells Rap-Up.com. “I believe that every day in your life is different. January 1, 2010, will be different than January 1, 2011, no matter if you go to the same place with the same people with the same thing. Everything is different and life is essentially ADD because it’s all over the place.”

Attention: Deficit will feature production from Mark Ronson (“Mirrors” feat. Bun B, “90210”), Cool & Dre (“Chillin'” and “World Tour” feat. Jazmine Sullivan), Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio (“Warrior” feat. K’Naan), Sean C and LV (“OG”), and Sleepwalkers (“Diary” feat. Marsha Ambrosius).
