On October 18th, Wale’s new single “Focused” featuring Kid Cudi will be unleashed onto iTunes and other digital outlets. The song will most likely find it’s way online sooner if Wale’s feeling generous, but October 18th is the day you can purchase it. Above is the official single artwork for the Kid Cudi featured track. Wale’s new album Ambition will be available November 1st. Pre-order it here.
Wale and Kid Cudi recently squashed their beef which resulted to them getting together for this collaboration. Below is a recent statement from Wale about this Ambition track.
“It’s a testament to where I am lyrically, spiritually, all of that, because this song almost never happened, as y’all know,” Wale said of “Focused.” “It feels like the record that ‘Is There Any Love’ was supposed to be. When they kept talking about me and Cudi in every magazine, this is the record I felt like they needed to hear — the one that everybody was going to get behind, and it was going to go top 40 and not be corny. This is like the best top 40 non-cheesy record that you’re ever going to hear in your life. That’s how I feel about it.”
