Video Premiere: Wale: “My Sweetie”

If your last name got 13 letters in it, this is for you…

Puerto Ricans salsa, Haitians kompa, and Nigerians play Yoruba at house parties. All different styles but with the same mission: family, food, friends, and lots of dancing.

Wale offers up some new bonus tracks to his debut album, Attention Deficit. “My Sweetie” is a nod to Nigerian family parties, which is the same as any ethnic family gathering: kids showing off their moves, the older women hanging out in the kitchen, and great music blazing from the speakers.
