NEW MUSIC: “For Free”- DJ Khaled ft Drake
The leaders of OVO and We the Best Music have teamed up to bring us the new summer 16 anthem!
Earlier this week, there was news floating around the Twitter world that Drake and DJ Khaled would be dropping a new track. Now usually, when news like this is released, you never know when the track is coming or even if it’s coming at all (Shade to Frank Ocean).
Then, about two hours later, one of the more reliable hip hop pages on Twitter said that DJ Khaled had received Drake’s vocals and was in the studio mixing the song. There was still no confirmation of this from Drake nor Khaled, so I didn’t get too excited.
Then it happened! No more than 7 hours later, “For Free” was the number one trending topic on Twitter. The song was out…the very same day it was announced and mixed.
When the beat started, it honestly made me wanna start twerking (Good thing I’m going to a party tommarrow, I made sure it was on the playlist.). The beat reminds me heavily of Too Short’s “Blow The Whistle”.
The song isn’t lyrical or deep or anything in that realm, it’s a lit party song. This is the one that will set the charts on fire for at least two months, the song that will be overplayed but you will dance and sing along to.
Drake is obviously the hit maker, so no suprise he is on this summer anthem, and DJ Khaled doesn’t have a verse here, but he certainly showed off his producing skills. After turning it on, I replayed it over 12 times and was just on the train rocking.
