After earning another series of hits from Rebirth, Lil Wayne is not afraid to go outside of his lane. The Young Money rapper recently stepped out of his comfort zone for his latest single. A few days ago, a new Lil Wayne single leaked.
Titled "How to Love," the song featured Lil Wayne singing. Wayne has always tried to harmonize throughout his career. On many of his early songs, Lil Wayne sings his rap verses. Later in his career, he began using auto-tune.
But, on his "How to Love" record, Lil Wayne is actually trying to sing and is not using auto-tune. The reaction from the fans has given another hit to Wayne, the third off the unreleased Carter IV. After the strong reaction, Lil Wayne spoke on the album.
Growing as an artist, Lil Wayne said this is a transitional record he needed to do. Lil Wayne obviously thinks of himself as more than a rapper. Instead, he views himself as an artist and records like "How to Love" help that cause tremendously. Initially, Lil Wayne said Tha Carter IV would be the album everyone wanted, with just rap. But, it seems as if this album will also feature more of his experimental records as well.
