DJ Khaled & Rihanna’s “Wild Thoughts” Samples Santana
“Wild Thoughts,” a song from DJ Khaled’s upcoming album Grateful that features Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, appears to sample Santana and the Product G&B’s 1999 hit “Maria Maria.” This weekend, Rihanna and Khaled were spotted filming a music video for the track in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood, and the “Maria Maria” guitar riff can be distinctly heard in some paparazzi footage taken at the shoot. (Incidentally, a takedown copyright notice regarding that same footage is the only reason we know the song title. Thanks, Epic Records!). Watch the video here and check out some photos from the shoot courtesy of DJ Khaled’s Instagram below.
