In the spirit of Valentine’s, it is expected that the theme of “love” serenades us almost too intensely-–a joy to some, a nightmare to others. On his track “All Star Break Up,” Wale is very vocal on his supposed disdain for the holiday, reminiscing over bitter experiences. He creates an interesting parallel between the upcoming NBA All-Star Weekend and his Valentine’s woes. This song is Wale’s ironic gift to the lonely and broken-hearted-–a kind of comfort in like minded company.
Whether or not Valentine’s Day is your thing, this smooth blend of lyrics and melody is worth listening to!
