Pretty Girls

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the third single from Attention Deficit, American hip hop rapper Wale's debut album. On this track, Wale raps about the type of woman he has his eye on.
This features southern rapper Gucci Mane and Weensey aka Wink, lead singer of Backyard Band, a go-go band from the Washington, D.C. area.
The song samples Backyard Band's go-go rendition of The Moments and The Whatnauts track "Girls." The original soul number was a #3 hit in the UK in 1975.
Wale explained to MTV News how the song is a nod to the go-go sound that was prevalent in his hometown while he was growing up. (Check out E.U.'s 1988 hit "Da Butt" for an example of the go-go sound). Said Wale: "I brought Gucci on the record because when I was growing up, Master P, Juvenile and a lot of these other Southern artists used to play with the go-go bands. It's almost trying to pay homage to that era, when I came up. Now you can even see Jim Jones or Shawty Lo perform with some of the go-go bands where I'm from. This is my attempt to kinda show you that. I think we did a pretty good job of executing it - we gonna have some fun with pretty women!"
