With the 1999 Carlos Santana classic, being musically and spiritually summons by DJ Khaled, the sultry and spicy vocals of Miss Ri Ri and Mr. Bryson Tiller combined is called forth to create the perfect swagged out resurrection of “Maria Maria” – with all new words of course. “Wild Thoughts”, is the name of the track and with its release just last Friday, reportedly fans are crowning it the Summer Anthem, and rightly so.
First time I heard it, I was at a party and as soon as it came on, I knew it was a hit. It felt good. Yes, it felt real good. Like that ole 90s R&B and Hip Hop track combined. Nostalgia, at its best.
Garnering more than three quarters of a million views on YouTube the day it debuted, the video (directed by Colin Tilley) is a mix between an island dirty dancing scene and a PRE-view of an epic magnetic 4th of July party with a hell of a fireworks show at the end, leaving us star gazing and adequately amped for a WILD summer.
And the fashion, bright, colorful and sexy and not doing too much, capturing the essence of what less is more means. With DJ Khaled’s floral bomber, he definitely is setting the tone for patterns so expect to see more men rocking their patterns ladies. And Ri Ri is ALWAYS ALWAYS stunting effortlessly. She makes the doo rag scarf, bamboo earrings, half crop top and Versace looking pants look sizzling 🔥🔥🔥. And those flat sandal boots with the turquoise dress, sets off the whole moment.
Looks like DJ Khaled has “Another One”. I love a man that keeps giving you hit after hit after hit😉.
💜Love & Light☀️,
