Standing with his back to the camera and his hands spread wide, Weezy might want to show his fans his softer side that he rarely exposes.
Lil Wayne has, literally, turned his back in a newly-revealed cover art of his next single "How to Love". The artwork seems to emphasize that despite his usual fiery verses, the Young Money rap mogul does have soft side and it's hidden beneath the hard facade.
Weezy ditches rapping and turns into a crooner in "How to Love". Coming from production hands of Detail, the ballad track features sweet/broody verses. The guitar-laced song opens with, "See you had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart/ Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out how to love."
Talking about the song, he told MTV in a recent interview, "I can tell you that I've never had a single like it, and it's an amazing song. It's an amazing song." He added, "When I listen to it I get goose bumps. And I feel like the song is gonna take me somewhere that I've never been musically."
The song is recorded for Weezy's new studio installment "Tha Carter IV" which is coming out in the U.S. on June 21. A week before the album release, he will kick off the second leg of his I Am Still Tour at Comcast Theater in Hartford, CT with Rick Ross, Keri Hilson and Far East Movement.
