2013 is the year of the suit. Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke pioneered the look and now Wale is following in their suave footsteps by dressing in his Sunday best for The Late Show With David Letterman last night (June 27). The recent Nicki Minaj-collaborator rapped “LoveHate Thing” with vocalist Sam Dew and sounded very, very good.
The only hitch was the awkward intro. Wale pretended to be on the phone to President Obama, which was actually kind of embarrassing because he’s not Jay-Z. Happily, he redeemed himself with the actual performance. The MC has a big week ahead. His debut album The Gifted is set to top the charts next week with an estimated sales tally of 140,000 copies. Not bad!
