Wale Samples the Same Record as Q-Tip on “Poke It Out”

Wale explains why he left Jay-Z's Roc Nation

Wale‘s recent track probably sounds familiar if you were a fan of Q-Tip’s 1999 album Amplified. It featured the hit record “Vivrant Thing” produced by Q-tip himself. In the updated flip, Cool and Dre put their spin on the Abstract’s classic dance beat. The sample originally comes from a Barry White (Love Unlimited Orchestra) record called “I Wanna Stay.”

J Cole stops by to assist the ode to women with booties of all sizes. The track doesn’t need much help since the original beat is a serious uptempo groove. It’s always nice to see quality music becoming retro with a return to what makes it on the radio these days. Check out “Poke It Out” by Wale and compare it to the original.
