Before Luis Fonsi came around with his “Despacito” remix, it was DJ Khaled’s Justin Bieber collabo, “I’m The One,” that ruled the Billboard Hot 100. The 41-year-old producer is looking to reclaim the crown with his new offering. I have a strong feeling he just might.
Having Rihanna on vocals is already a fantastic start, but when you pair them with a killer sample from the late 90s, you have a winning combination. “Wild Thoughts,” which also includes Bryson Tiller, samples Santana‘s 1999 smash hit “Maria Maria” featuring The Product G&B. Khaled’s accompanying visual also echoes Santana’s original clip, set at an evening outdoor fiesta.
As always, RiRi looks absolutely stunning in the video. Absolute slayage. I predict this lit track will work its way into the Top 10 in no time. Check out the Colin Tilley-directed clip below.
