‘DJ Khaled – Wild Thoughts ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller’

“Wild Thoughts” is a song by American musician DJ Khaled featuring Barbadian singer Rihanna and American singer Bryson Tiller.

It was released on June 16, 2017, by We the Best and Epic Records as the fourth single from Khaled’s tenth studio album, Grateful(2017). Canadian singer PartyNextDoor assisted the artists in writing the song, with production handled by Khaled. A mid-tempo Latin-inspired song, “Wild Thoughts” consists of Latin percussion, acoustic guitar lines and riffs that are heavily sampled from the 1999 hit single “Maria Maria” by American Latin rock band Santana.

Several critics praised its composition and Rihanna’s for commanding the song, however others felt that song was too similar to the original “Maria Maria” (1999). Commercially the song peaked at number two in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. The song also peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 becoming Rihanna’s thirty first top ten, Khaled’s third and Tiller’s first. The music video for the song was directed by Colin Tilley and was shot in in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, Florida.
