Week after week, DJ Khaled drops “another one” from his upcoming album, ‘Grateful’, and this time he’s scouted Rhianna and Bryson tiller.
Co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR and sampling from old school classic ‘Maria Maria’ from Santana, the trio have whisked us away to a tropical paradise with a Spanish and Caribbean carnival vibe. The enticing acoustic chords and electric riffs are joined with a funky baseline to bring that cultural and party atmosphere to our ears.
Rhianna’s vocals are the perfect addition to the summer anthem and Bryson Tiller, who we can’t get enough of right now, dosing us with his trap-soul raps makes this latest release, dare we say it, our favourite DJ Khaled drop of the summer so far.
The latest release has also been graced with a carnival orientated music video which follows Rhianna and Khaled strutting their stuff through a colourful street party. From fire tricks to salsa dancing, the two are surrounded by people singing and dancing in the streets before being joined by Tiller, and the trio stand in front of a firework display and DJ Khaled shows of some questionable dance moves – watch from 3:14 in the music video and judge for yourself.
The video also includes another cameo from the music producers son, who’s made a number of appearances in previous videos and is the main focus in the artwork of Khaled’s singles and album cover; the clearly DJ displaying how ‘Grateful’ he is for being blessed with a baby boy.
