New Video: Wale – “MY PYT”
While many are riding the dancehall wave, Wale incorporates soul classics into one of his latest singles, “My PYT.”
The rapper sampled hits by two former Motown artists: Marvin Gaye (Sexual Healing) and Michael Jackson (P.Y.T.). Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” clearly had heavy influence on the potential summer hit.
Directed by Colin Tilley, the visuals can be described as colorful and summery. The music video premiered prior to headliner, Kendrick Lamar’s set at the Google Play Music Block. It features numerous models of different shades, involved in summer activities (Ex: Tennis, dancing on the poolside, etc.) Meanwhile, Wale plays a lifeguard.
The mid-tempo cut will be featured on Wale’s upcoming effort, “SHINE.”
