Wale and Genius hosted a listening session for his upcoming 5th solo album SHINE in New York City on Wednesday night (Apr. 26). During the event, Wale announced that his new album will be available a week early, dropping this Friday instead of its original May 5th release date. Before it arrives at midnight, Ralph Folarin liberates a new track titled “Shine Season,” a song he previewed last night that didn’t make the album’s final cut.

Lil’ Wayne, Chris Brown, Major Lazer, Travi$ Scott, WizKid, G-Eazy, and J Balvin all make guest appearances on SHINE, available on iTunes later tonight.
