Video Premiere: Wale's 'Pretty Girls'

is joined by a lot of beautiful ladies and partying hard in Chris Robinson-directed music video for his single "Pretty Girls". His collaborator doesn't make a cameo because he is currently serving behind the bars during the video shoot.

"Pretty Girls" comes from Wale's first studio album called "" and is recorded to pay homage to the go-go era in his hometown. He said, "Initially for the record, we wanted to show [Washington] D.C.'s music from a sonic standpoint, as well as have some fun. This was supposed to be my first single; it's actually my second single now. 'Chillin' was a global sound, now I wanna give you my regional sound. It's about having fun."

"I brought Gucci on the record because when I was growing up, , and a lot of these other Southern artists used to play with the go-go bands. It's almost trying to pay homage to that era, when I came up. Now you can even see or perform with some of the go-go bands where I'm from."
