Wale isn’t letting critics and album sales stop his forward movement. Following “My PYT,” “Running Back” and “Fashion Week” comes a new visual for the more chill “Colombia Heights,” which features Colombian reggaeton artist J Balvin.
The visual (courtesy of Mikeho) is an example of true artistic beauty, highlighted by the gold-painted women on display and Wale’s own fashion sense. Both artists come with dope verses — Folarin speaks on his upbringing while Balvin weaves a tale (in Spanish) of his tryst with a cheating woman. It’s a solid meshing of cultures, as the title suggests: Wale represents the District of Columbia while Balvin holds down his closely-named stomping grounds (Columbia Heights is also a neighborhood in D.C.).
