You know what they say, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. So if you’re DJ Khaled and you drop a star-studded banger that blows up the charts, and then you do it again, and it blows up the charts again, why would you stop? All of that was a long way of saying that Khaled’s got a new single, Take It To The Head, and sure enough it’s a star-studded banger. Frequent production partners The Runners provide a synthy hip-pop beat that when paired with Chris Brown’s hook give Head its catchy appeal. On the rapper end of the spectrum, Rick Ross kicks off the festivities with a typically Bawsed out verse, followed by an offering from an atypically subdued Nicki Minaj and then closed off with Lil Wayne, who’s also apparently in a relaxed mood. It’s not exactly the song that will change the world, but Khaled’s not looking to make music history, he’s looking to blow up the charts yet again. So how about it DJBooth Nation, is Take It To The Head Khaled’s next hit? Regardless, we should all know what to expect from Khaled’s upcoming, currently unscheduled album, Kiss the Ring.
