In the midst of all the GRAMMY commotion last night, DJ Khaled surprised everyone by dropping a new single [*ANOTHER ONE*] titled “Shining” featuring power couple, Beyoncé and Jay-Z. [*ICON ALERT*]
The lively, inspirational single, co-written by PARTYNEXTDOOR, has Bey singing about her blessings and winning streaks from music to her pregnancy. Jay follows Yonceé by spitting gasoline and emptying his subliminal clip, which many thought were shots at Drake.
“I’ve been winnin’ so long it’s like alchemy / I’ve been playin’ cards with the house money / 21 Grammys, I’m a savage n***a / 21 Grammys, I’m a savage n***a / I shouldn’t even worry, backward n***s
12 solo albums, all Platinum, n***a,” raps Hov and goes on with, “I know you ain’t out here talkin’ numbers, right / I know you ain’t out here talkin’ summers, right / I know you ain’t walkin’ ’round talkin’ down / Sayin’ boss shit when you a runner, right?.”
The bars in my opinion were a direct response to both Drake’s singles “Summer Sixteen” and “Sneakin” featuring 21 Savage. Let me know what you took from it in the comments below. Many fans are questioning PARTNEXTDOOR’s loyalty with the writing credit, but he worked only on Beyoncé’s part and not Jay’s.
“Shining” is the first single off Khaled’s 10th album ‘Grateful’, which shows his son Ashad on the cover. Khaled announced Ashad will executive produce the upcoming album.
