While it is true that DC heavyweight Wale has released his album Shine quite a few months ago, it still seems to be making some waves in the music industry and because of this steady momentum, Wale decided to drop visuals for a personal favorite of mine “Columbia Heights (Te Llamo)”.
The track itself plays into the lifestyle of the Columbia Heights neighborhood in Washington D.C., briefly touching on its deep Hispanic roots and rich culture. While I’m not fully clear on the concept, the video was rather well put together tying in a unique set of artistic themes.
Personally, I would say that the feature with Colombian singer J Balvin was an excellent choice, his calm yet melodic voice really brings a new level to the track, meshing it all together and bringing back that more latin feel.
Watch the video below and let us know what you think.
