Now that their “beef” is squashed, Wale and Kid Cudi have linked up for what’s being called the main radio single off Wale’s November 1 album Ambition. Wale has called this track “the best non-cheesy Top 40 record that you’re ever going to hear in your life.” The term “non-cheesy Top 40” is an oxymoron, but Wale does the best an emcee can reasonably do over this type of synthetic production. Cudi’s chorus work here is pretty much an afterthought. “Focused” will probably be one of the weaker tracks on the album.
WALE X KID CUDI “FOCUSED”
