Wale ft. Miguel - Lotus Flower Bomb

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Sneak Beatz
Album:
Ambition

In Eastern religions, the sacred lotus or padma has long been held up as a symbol of divine beauty, sexual purity and non-attachment to the external world, thanks to its ability to “float” above the water’s surface without getting wet or soiled. (Thanks, Wikipedia!) The Lotus Flower Bomb Wale addresses on this newly-leaked album standout? Beautiful she may be but, if the Maybach signee has his way, her purity won’t last for long. A smooth and seductive counterpoint to the glossy game-spitting of Best Night Ever, this cut finds Mr. Folarin exercising his powers of amorous persuasion over Sneak Beatz’ airy key and slow-burning rhythm section. In addition to a silver tongue, he shows his usual quick wit:“Easy baby, I know you the bomb, but I’ll be damned if I don’t land mine/landmine.Jive Records hitmaker Miguel handles guest duties, providing backing ‘Ah‘s, “Oh‘s and “Oohs” as well as a steamy chorus. Are you head over heels for Wale’s latest effort? Then you’ll undoubtedly find more to like on the emcee’s Ambition LP, set to hit stores and online retailers Nov. 1.
