DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller Head to Little Haiti in “Wild Thoughts” Video
DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller take to the streets of Florida's Little Haiti in their video for "Wild Thoughts," the newest single off Khaled's star-studded Grateful album, dropping next Friday (June 23). Watch the visual below.
The new visual, which we first reported the three artists shooting just over a week ago, finds Khaled, Rihanna and Tiller roaming Little Haiti during what looks like a festival. Riri's rocking some island-inspired garb and Khaled's wearing a floral track jacket as they dance in the streets to the rhythm of "Wild Thoughts" while Tiller rolls solo for most of the vid before uniting with the other two atop a building later on.
The "Wild Thoughts" beat—which was produced by Nasty Beatmakers—features a prominent sample from Carlos Santana's "Maria Maria," with the tempo being just a tad more upbeat. Floating over the track, Rihanna and Tiller croon on about the "wild thoughts" they have when they approach someone they've got some romantic feelings for. It's worth noting that PartyNextDoor has a songwriting credit on the record.
"Wild Thoughts" became one of Grateful's most anticipated tracks from the moment the video for it was seen being shot a short while ago, and that was before anyone even knew the name of the song. If all goes according to plan, it should go follow in the footsteps of "I'm the One" and reach platinum status in the very near future.
