"Lotus Flower Bomb, Firefly, When I’m Low, She Take Me High"

With a month left until @Wale's new album drops, it's becoming clear that Ambition is going to sound every bit as stylistically diverse as his first album Attention Deficit. I've been pretty vocal about how much I disliked Wale's first couple Maybach Music tracks. I was so critical of the tracks because much of my interest in Wale as an artist comes from his lyrical sincerity and unique go-go sound he can bring to tracks. Hearing tracks like this and this really pushed me to the edge in wondering whether or not I was going to continue being on the bandwagon.

With all that being said, one of my favorite tracks off Attention Deficit was Diary and the track below, Lotus Flower Bomb, reminds me a lot of that track. I'll take this a step further in complimenting Wale's mom because these types of "ode to women" type tracks that lyrically show the limitless amount of respect he has for women. It helps too, when you have @MiguelUnlimited on the hook and @JERRINHOWARD on the keys delivering the instrumental. I'd give this a 50/50 shot at eventually being a single, but even if it isn't it will add quality to the album, rather than being a filler track.
