A day after the historic and emotionally exhausting Super Bowl LI, Wale has released the official music video for his football-themed single “Running Back.”
The Lil Wayne-assisted cut debuted in early January, during the rappers’ performance on ESPN’s First Take. Shortly before the premiere, behind-the-scenes footage of the track’s official music video surfaced on the internet, giving fans a sneak peek at the ACRS-directed project.
The final product shows Wale and Tunechi in front of colorful and graphic backdrops, sipping drinks and dancing with beautiful women. You’ll also notice Wale is rocking the jersey of USC Trojans Joe McKnight, an NFL running back who was fatally shot in late 2016.
You can check out the “Running Back” video above. The track will appear on Wale’s upcoming S.H.I.N.E. album.
