After watching SZA's "The Weekend" find a home in the hearts of R&B fans in 2017, Wale decided to inject his flavor onto the Platinum record with his latest remix. 

Premiering the record on Billboard, Wale pumps out a multitude of fiery bars about infidelity. Despite having a slew of side chicks on his plate, Wale attempts to cajole his lady into understanding his "selfish ways." "I'm not trying to play you like you're not a part of me/ but that one in the pom poms probably put paws on you," he admits.  

Later, he examines his shortcomings and wonders if he's in fact the one to blame. "I'm just trying to see quality over quantity/ I'm just trying to say I be trying to live honestly/ I'm just trying to say when you be sending nudes I turn into Pookie in New Jack, that shit be calling me," he raps before allowing SZA to regain control of her song.

SZA and Wale previously collaborated on the MMG star's 2015 project The Album About Nothing for the song "The Need to Know."
