Ladies and gentleman, Wale is officially back! The creative MC’s hightly-anticipated Shine dropped this morning (Apr. 28) and the fourth track, “My Love” is an absolute jam.

The dancehall-inspired tune (courtesy of Major Lazer) features plucky guitar work, infectious steel pan percussion, and impressive vocal performances from Dua Lipa and WizKid.

“You’ve been here, but you’ve been missin’ for some time now / Every time I see you, it’s a different vibe now,” Dua Lipa leads off. “I can’t help but let you just go away, Can we get back what we had yesterday?” she croons in a buttery tone.

Wale’s signature melodic delivery punctuates the track as he drops an impressive array of rhymes, referencing Mortal Kombat characters and pulling from reggae-lingo in the verses. “My team, team, we on that new ‘ting,” he spits with a Jamaican flare. “My mink draggin’ like it’s Liu Kang,” Wale continues, referencing the classic video game.

The chorus is a bubbly, arms-in-the-air sing-a-long led by the talented WizKid. “Show me my love / Show me sweet love,” he croons, as Dua Lipa adds embellishment over top.

Hear the single below, and be sure to check out the rest of Wale’s impressive album.
