When: 4/14/2009

Wale was prepping to release his Interscope debut, Attention Deficit, back in 2009. To build a considerable buzz for his album, he surprised the music world by announcing a collaboration with Lady Gaga. “Chillin’” was an upbeat club-ready single inspired by the Go-Go scene popularized in Washington D.C.  Despite its lukewarm reception by critics, it was definitely a profound statement. "If Jay-Z can work with Coldplay, then Wale should be able to work with Gaga," he told MTV.
