Wale Releases 'My P.Y.T', First Single From New Album


(Radio.com) Wale released his very first single "My P.Y.T" off his upcoming album Shine on Friday (May 20). For the track, he puts his own spin on Michael Jackson's song "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)."

The chill track has a laid back beat with a chorus that borrows from Jackson's song. Wale adds his own raps about his very special-very well endowed-New York pretty young thing on the verses. The gal may be younger than Wale, but she keeps him on his toes.

''My P.Y.T' is actually my first rhythmic record since my very first single 'Chillin' with Gaga," Wales said, according to a press release. "I've put out singles like 'The Matrimony,' 'Bad,' and 'Lotus Flower Bomb,' which ended up getting me a GRAMMY nomination, but this is my first upbeat, 'for the clubs' record in years so the process was a lot different. I took extra time on each and every line, making sure it appealed to a specific but diverse audience at the same time."

Wale will be dropping his fifth studio album Shine this fall. No release date has yet been announced. Read more here.
