Watch video - a personal message from K'NAAN:

D.C. native Wale has previously toured with Mark Ronson and JAY-Z and is also slated to perform at Coachella, Bamboozle, and D.C United's season opener as part of their "It Takes More" Concert Series.

Wale has been described as "hip hop's hungriest mind and most incisive tongue" with raps that "are some of the most playfully sophisticated in the industry" (Paper Magazine).

His album, Attention Deficit, has received critical acclaim since its release, and according to Spin, "sheds light on Wale's evolving personality, and his circuitous story-raps reward deep listening."

K'NAAN's voice will be heard across the globe as his song, "Wavin' Flag," becomes the soundtrack for Coca-Cola's promotional coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™.

The Wall Street Journal recently said of "Wavin' Flag": "the upbeat anthem about freedom has a good chance of becoming one of the most ubiquitous new songs of the year."

The track is an upbeat, empowering remix, from Troubadour K'NAAN's 2009 sophomore album (A&M/Octone). Do not miss your chance to see him for yourself!
