DJ Khaled just knows how to make an entrance. His fourth single lifted from “Grateful” struts and swaggers through a sleazy, salacious, and nostalgic riff-fest that heavily relies on star power. “Wild Thoughts” seemingly is up for a summer theme as early as now as it gains momentum on streaming sites and charts easily becoming the next collaboration to hit all time high anytime soon.
Featuring Queen Rihanna and American trap and hip-hop artist Bryson Tiller, “Wild Thoughts” is packed with serrated electric guitars sampling Santana’s “Maria Maria”, driven by walloping beats but recorded in well-measured rhythm about carnal desires and innuendos done in subtle space and pacing that demands your attention. The Latin rock aesthetics of the track is refreshing atop RiRi and Tiller’s trading of sexy croons like “wa wa wa”. It is not hard to to be swept up in the momentum of DJ Khaled’s unifying efforts to produce a string of garage R&B seductions. “Wild Thoughts” is co written by PartyNextDoor
