Wale teams up with Nicki Minaj and Juicy J on a new twerk song “Clappers to the Front” off his new album The Gifted. The bounce-worthy record is jam-packed with booty praise and animated flow, with Wale screaming “Shorty got a big ‘ole butt” on the hook.
As expected, Minaj lends her signature inflection-fueled rhymes, while Juicy J adds his southern swag to the mix.
“Clappers” is of course a solid, fun record for radio. It will especially do well in the southern market. With the hip-hop world practically shut down thanks to the release of Kanye West and J. Cole’s album releases, it’s probably a good idea that Wale keep releasing a few tracks from the album (which comes out June 25) so that he doesn’t get lost in the shuffle over the next few weeks. Nice to hear that Wale has some variety club music on the album to counterbalance his more lyrically heavy track “Bad.”
