New Video: DJ Khaled, Rihanna, & Bryson Tiller – ‘Wild Thoughts’

Published: Friday 16th Jun 2017 by Sam

It’s here!

DJ Khaled has hatched the video for ‘Wild Thoughts’ – his hotly anticipated collaboration with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.

The flavorsome offering is the latest taste of the hitmaker’s 10th studio album ‘Grateful’ – due via Epic Records / Roc Nation on June 23rd.

Khaled co-produced the cut, which samples Santana‘s smash ‘Maria,’ with PARTYNEXTDOOR.

Really though, what are you waiting for? Watch the video for ‘Wild Thoughts,’ directed by Colin Tilley, below…

We like.

With the the names involved, the natural expectation is for a club banger. But this bop bangs in its own way.

The production is lush and the sample was used to exquisite effect. Cute visual too.

It’s not as “instant” as fans of all involved likely anticipated and does sound distinctly “third / fourth single” (which it actually is). But, nonetheless, it’s still radio friendly and could make some noise on the charts.

Your thoughts?

    Eehhhh…DJ Khaled has had a lot of misses with this album, and this one is ANOTHA ONE! The production showed no creativity and just a blatant rip off sample. It left much to be desired from me. He could’ve taken that beat and done so many more things. Oh yeah that’s right he’s not a real producer. He buys left over tracks and just screams on it. I’m sorry Rih, you KNOW i fucwks with you hard, but this ain’t it! It ain’t your fault, the song is trash and even you couldn’t save it. Plus, I must admit I ain’t liking your weight gain. Bryson’s verse is fire tho.

      Bey and jay did a rip off with boyfriend and it was amazing. Just like this too will Be the best offerings from the album. It’s not a bad as you are making it.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy June 16, 2017

        I’m just not a fan of it. I love the fact that the video is shot in lil haiti, but that’s about it. Maybe I need to listen to it woth a blunt

        Boyfriend is a CLASSIC hip hop record lol. Don’t even try it.

  3. Rihboy June 16, 2017

    Amazing!!! She is the song!!! I love the sample! Probably the best drop off the album!

  4. Meme June 16, 2017

    Hottest track this summer. So hot! Lord

  5. Meme June 16, 2017

    Rihanna is really making the boobs thing her signature. All of her videos her last era she rocked see-thru tops. so freaking beautiful man.

  6. ThatMessJuice.Flop June 16, 2017

    The song is aight. I just wish the guitar riff could have done without coz it makes the song too familiar. Other than that Rih sounds so goo’

    • Cyrano June 16, 2017

      M’y thought exactly !

  7. Suicide Blonde June 16, 2017

    The Santana sample is the only good thing about this song, it lacks catchiness. Rihanna looks good, a little bit out of shape but still gorgeous.

    • Glorious Sun June 16, 2017

      That girl body is beautiful. you trippin

      • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2017

        Does it make you less of a fan if you admit that she is out of shape?….Do’t be paranoid, you’re still a fan, we all saw those bikini pics.

    • Real Talk June 16, 2017

      I love Rihanna but she needs to lose this weight coz this industry music will treat her like Urban girl and how long she gonna wear these ugly/preggo cloths she already lost all the Awards 2016 was not good look and if she wants come back she needs fire all her team and start new team and change her ugly look #disgusting.

  8. Gee June 16, 2017

    This is the best single from this album so far.

    This is straight up fire! Come through Rih

  11. blue June 16, 2017

    rihanna us not skinny but out of shape? there are wide range of shapes before fat that aren’t skeletal.

    • Suicide Blonde June 16, 2017

      I didn’t say she was fat, but that she is out of shape, very different.

    • blue June 16, 2017

      she isn’t a ballet dancer not an athlete, so u calling her out of shape would be the same as calling her body unhealthy.

  12. DanYiel Iman June 16, 2017

    Yea I’m not a fan of this song either & I actually love “Shining” feat Beyoncé & Jay Z! 🤷🏽‍♂️

    • meme June 16, 2017

      Yeah and you see what happened with that lol

  13. Mr.StLaurent June 16, 2017

    Realy like the song, I still prefer “I’m the one” to this song.
    And i wish the sample was less clearly recognizable

  14. P&R June 16, 2017

    This song is trash. What a blantant rip-off of Carlos Santana’s “Maria, Maria” song. Where is the creativity? The original was a smash hit, this will pale in comparison. Rih’s vocals are good and so is Bryson’s verse. That’s all I got.

  15. trutealdn123 June 16, 2017

    rihanna im in love u look soo hot damn!!

  16. ricky June 19, 2017

    i LOVE this song. Rihanna sounds amazing and looks great. I love the video. I love the entire thing and can’t wait for the rest of the album.
