New favorite song alert!
“Wild Thoughts” is the fourth single from DJ Khaled’s “Grateful” album on June 16, 2017. The single features Barbadian singer Rihanna and American singer Bryson Tiller, and was produced by Khaled and Nasty Beatmakers. The song samples Santana’s hit, Maria Maria with the Product G&B. DJ Khaled had previously collaborated with Tiller on Major Key, but the single marks his first collaboration with Rihanna.
Khaled described his attempts to court Rihanna for a feature appearance on an album for several years in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, stating “seven, eight years I’ve been trying to do this. I always put the kites out there that I wanted to work with her [and] I was always getting the right record ready [to] see if something comes back that’s possible.” The single housed elements of Latin pop and contemporary R&B, and debuted at number four on the Billboard Hot 100.
