Wale Witnesses a Wedding Go Wrong in ‘The Matrimony’ Video Featuring Usher
Embarking on the road that is marriage is never easy. After conquering the Billboard charts with his latest album, The Album About Nothing, Wale now tries to combat his fears of commitment in the video for "The Matrimony," featuring Usher.
While neither man plays the role of the groom, Wale's love interest Bria Murphy -- the daughter of comedian Eddie Murphy -- is looking gorgeous and ready to take the next step with another guy. In the video, Wale ruminates on his past relationship and grapples with the agonizing loss of his unborn baby with Bria.
"I'll admit it, all being pathetic / I'm in my late 20s still never been to a wedding / Guess the idea of that lobby empty do not sit with me well / It's not your fault they try to get me, 'cause I'ma need to sail," he raps courageously.
Usher lends a helping hand to a heartbroken Folarin on the hook singing, "If there's a question of my heart, you've got it / It don't belong to anyone but you."
Wale's candor was very evident in his fourth album. "The Matrimony" definitely helps convey his maturity as not only a man, but more importantly as an artist. This video serves as his third official visual from this project with "The Girls On Drugs" and "The White Shoes" serving as his other two.
