Was Wale’s ‘Lotus Flower Bomb’ About Solange?
Seven years later, a fun fact has come out about Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb.”
A fan on Twitter asked the D.C spitter who inspired the love song, and he simply responded “She married now.” Though he can be talking about any of his past loves that the world doesn’t know about, it is speculated that he is talking about Solange Knowles.
Back in 2009, Wale was vocal about his love for the “Cranes in the Sky” singer.
“I do love her,” he said told the now defunct Honey Magazine. “We’re friends. She’s amazing. She’s a good person. Any single mother contributing to society the way she does – I got a lot of love for them. She’s got to do a lot on her own and raise a young black man in this day and age so my hat goes off to her. She’s definitely an anomaly. And the way she can do that and manage to do the same things that I complain about having to do.”
Solange is now married to director Alan Ferguson.
“Lotus Flower Bomb,” which features Miguel, led to Wale’s first Grammy nomination.
