It appears that the promotional push behind Wale’s solid debut, Attention Deficit, has not come to an end just yet. The above visuals for “Diary” just hit MTV last night and, unsurprisingly, they arrive via the work of director Rik Cordero. Like some of his other videos, this one works to accentuate the narrative lyrics within the track. “Diary” follows Wale around as a storyteller describing the relationship and personal woes of a woman he knows intimately. Everything gets slightly cheesy when he’s sitting on a barstool on a small club stage like some spoken word poet, but luckily it doesn’t completely take away from the overall viewing experience.
Wale’s Attention Deficit is out now on Allido/Interscope.
