To celebrate the release of his new album, 'The Gifted,' this week, Wale got fancy for his performance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' last night (June 26).

Dressed in a long, asymmetrical suit jacket with buttons, slacks and dress shoes, Wale gave a smooth performance on the New York stage. Newcomer Sam Dew showcased his R&B-rooted vocals while DJ Drama served the beats on the turntables as the D.C. native rapped through his latest single, 'LoveHate Thing.'

Aside from a great performance, it looks like Wale is well on his way to his first No. 1 album. According to Billboard, 'The Gifted' could possibly top the Billboard 200 chart next week with an estimated 150,000 units sold.
