DJ KHALED DELIVERS FLORIDIAN SUMMER NIGHTS VIBE IN HIS 'WILD THOUGHTS' VIDEO FT. RIHANNA & BRYSON TILLER
DJ Khaled drops another track off his upcoming 'Grateful' album a week before its release.
DJ Khaled’s upcoming Grateful project is stacked with big-name features. He’s already blessed fans with singles assisted by Drake 'To the Max' and Jay Z and Beyoncé 'Shining' as well as Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne 'I'm the One'. On Friday morning, he kept the momentum going by dropping perhaps the most anticipated song from his 10th studio album: 'Wild Thoughts' featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.
The track was co-produced by the Nasty Beatmakers and includes a writing credit for Partynextdoor. It features a sample of Santana's 1999 hit, 'Maria Maria'. Prior to the track and video debut, Khaled thanked everyone who worked on the record.
Shot in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, the Colin Tilley-directed clip boasts a summer nights vibe, with its sample of Carlos Santana’s “Maria Maria”. RiRi and Khaled carry that motif with their colorful outfits, transporting the viewer to a warm Floridian night.
Featuring Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Alicia Keys, Calvin Harris, Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Pusha T, Jadakiss, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Migos, 21 Savage, T.I., Belly, and many more, Grateful is due June 23. Fans can also expect a music video for the album’s "It’s Secured" track featuring Nas and Travis Scott.
