Wale Sets 'Shine' Album Release Date for May

Dante Marshall

After flooding SoundCloud with a slew of offerings like "Groundhog Day" and "Folarin Like" among others, Wale is ready to drop his new album Shine this May.

The Atlantic Records signee's fifth studio effort will host several of his previous one-off releases, including the Lil Wayne-assisted "Running Back" and "Fashion Week," featuring G-Eazy. The features are scatted across genres as varied hitmakers like Major Lazer, J Balvin, Travis Scott, Wizkid and Chris Brown appear on the 14-track set. 

With the new album also comes the supporting Shine tour, as the MMG MC will be performing in major cities like Atlanta (the inaugural stop), New York, Houston and Los Angeles throughout May. 

Shine arrives May 5 and will be available for pre-order on Friday, April 7. Run through the track list below.
