DJ Khaled has kicked off Summer 2017 with yet another anthem- Wild Thoughts, featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. The Maria, Maria sample paired with vocals by Rihanna and Tiller sets the tone for the wild heat the music industry is expected to bring for Summer ’17.
The anticipation was high yet expected for Wild Thoughts and the upcoming release of Grateful. With features ranging from Jay-Z and Beyoncé’ to Kodak Black and Migos.
It’s no secret DJ Khaled has owned every summer season since 2006 with the bangers like Holla at Me, We Takin’ Over and All I Do Is Win (yes, there are more). Khaled Khaled’s reign will not be over anytime soon, as we are sure he has more posse cuts under his belt.
So, Following the drop of Shining, To the Max, I’m The One and now Wild Thoughts were now tempted to ask: what are the top 5 DJ Khaled summer anthems? Check out our list below.
We Takin’ Over- DJ Khaled Featuring T.I., Akon, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Lil’ Wayne & Baby
Down South Slangin 37
An all-star cast offering T.I. on the lead in verse to dominate and shout out the Southern states, notice- he did not forget to leave out Philly.
I Got the Keys- DJ Khaled Featuring Jay-Z & Future
Major key alert, major bag alert! Khaled bought Jay-Z and Future together for the first time on this summer smash. Our favorite line of Summer 16’ had to be “…my wife Beyoncé, I brag different.” Khaled also meshed a star-studded visual for the song feature including Nas, T.I., Fabulous and ASAP Ferg.
Wild Thoughts – DJ Khaled Featuring Rihanna & Bryson Tiller
How did he land the classic Carlos Santana sample? Anyway, Rihanna laid vocals next to Bryson Tiller on how their lovers expose their wildest thoughts and if you ask us, the pair bought flavor and summer time heat serving the original version justice.
All I Do Is Win- DJ Khaled Featuring T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross
T-Pain ushers in the motivational rap-star record with Ludacris, Rick Ross, and Snoop Dogg. The summer of 2010 was a year to get your money and stay on your grind primarily because of this Khaled track. President Obama even used ‘All I do Is Win’ during his opening speech at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.
Take It to The Head- DJ Khaled Featuring Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne
All Hands On Deck, Vol. 1
Khaled introduces the record with the line “working all winter, shining all summer…” more significant for everyone who worked on their summer bodies during the winter and the ones that stacked their bread, just to flex during the summer. With the chorus led by Chris Brown, Rick Ross and Nicki Minaj come together to rep for the bosses and barbs.
