DJ Khaled has officially entered the contest for song of the summer, with his new banger “No Brainer”. Tapping on some of the best of his former collaborators—Chance the Rapper, Quavo, and Justin Bieber—DJ Khaled uses bouncy production to nail down a contagious summer anthem. Check out “No Brainer” below.
The arrival of “No Brainer” has triggered a moment of confidence for DJ Khaled, who, to Zane Lowe on Beats 1, said “Not only we do we have another one–this is not only an anthem. This is going to be one of the biggest anthems in the world.”
While on Beats 1, Khaled also revealed how the collaboration with Justin Bieber came to be. “I FaceTimed him, and the record had the vibe and I wanted to present it to him,” he said. “Usually, I like to be there to play music, but he texted me back immediately. He said it’s amazing. This is super amazing, let’s go. Love it. Not only is God the greatest… that’s Justin Bieber. He don’t do many collaborations or features at all.”
“No Brainer” is the first single off DJ Khaled’s upcoming album, Father of Asahd, which will have 11 tracks. There is little known about the new album, besides reported studio sessions with Big Sean. Khaled is currently on the road with Beyoncé and JAY-Z opening for the North American leg of their “On the Run II Tour”.
