Wale Releases “My PYT”

Wale has released his brand spanking new single, “My PYT,” featuring Sam Sneak.

The Dope Boyz-produced track pays homage to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, by borrowing lyrics from his 1982 smash, “P.Y.T.”

But, he also shows love to Marvin Gaye with a sample of  bedroom classic, “Sexual Healing.”

Wale revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, meeting MJ’s mother Katherine Jackson, inspired him to hit the studio and pay homage to her legendary son.

The day I wrote this record, I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson’s mother, and it inspired me so much that it was pretty much all I could think about in the studio later that night.

I wanted to pay homage to the legend that is Michael in some way, and the chorus popped into my head and just felt right with the music. It’s just one of those songs that’s been omnipresent in my life since I was a kid.
