[WATCH] Wale- Black Is Gold Music Video

(via billboard)

Wale’s new single Black is Gold definitely reminds us of the songs he used to put out when he first arrived on the scene. The track is also the perfect antidote to end 2016 and open 2017 with. He sampled D’Angelo’s Lady to birth the empowering song that pays homage to India Arie, Justine Skye, SZA, First Lady Michelle Obama, Issa Rae, Shonda Rhimes, Lupita, Duckie Thot, and Viola Davis.

Black is Gold is such a feel good track, showing love to black culture.

Wale opens the first verse with:

Look, black is beautiful, shawty, that you should know

Don't let American standards damage your African soul,

and it definitely sets the tone for the rest of the song.
