Wale Includes Rihanna and Nicki Minaj in 'The Gifted' Album


The Washington D.C. rapper teams up with powerful musicians for his third studio album which will hit stores next June 25.

A week after unveiling the cover of his new album, "The Gifted", Wale released the complete tracklist. The Washington D.C. native apparently attempts to make his third studio album more powerful by asking superstars like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj to join him for the follow-up to his 2011's "Ambition".

Rihanna appears on Wale's "Bad (Remix)" where she takes the place of the song's original guest singer, Tiara Thomas. People have high expectation for this upcoming single. As for the original song which features Thomas, it has been on the Billboard charts for 14 weeks and peaked at number 7 for Hot Hip Hop/R&B Songs.

On "Clappers", Wale heads to a strip club where Juicy J does his verse and Minaj plays the role of a pimp. Reuniting with Meek Mill again, Wale makes "Heaven in Afternoon" sound differently interesting for its many musical transitions. Other collaborations include 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa on "Rotation" and YG and Dom Kennedy on "Hella".

Initially titled "The Curse of the Gifted", the album's name was then changed into "The Gifted". He said, "There's such a connotation, you might hear the album a certain way if I went with that title. That's the underlying theme of The Gifted is that there's things that come with it. There really might not be anything non-monetary that comes with it because your sanity, you give it up a little bit when you get famous."

"The Gifted" is Wale's third studio album which will come next June 25.
