As millions throughout the nation celebrate Women’s Equality Day today, Wale shares a new song entitled “BGM” in honor of women everywhere. Get it HERE via Warner Records.
Upheld since 1973 in recognition of the 19th amendment’s passage, the day posits a moment of reflection, celebration and commitment to equality regardless of gender.
In this soulful and spirited track, Wale not only praises inspiring females at the forefront of the culture (“Issa Whole queen” and “Every Empire needs a Taraji”), but its message also urges for equal pay: “Sometime it be really so hard for ya. White boy paid more same job as you. The least I can do is write a song THEN I’ll ‘Mawwwh’ that part of you.”
“BGM” arrives on the heels of Wale's most recent hit “On Chill” [feat. Jeremih]. The single earned a spot in the Top 20 at Radio and vaulted onto the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to racking up 20 million-plus streams. Check out the steamy visual HERE.
Everything paves the way for Wale's anxiously-awaited new album and first for Warner Records due this fall.
