DJ Khaled – Holy Key (ft. Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean & Betty Wright)
DJ Khaled premieres the third star-studded single from his upcoming ninth album ‘Major Key’, the Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean & Betty Wright- assisted ‘Holy Key’.
The hip-hop mogul has already racked up two top 40 Billboard hits with the Drake-assisted ‘For Free’ and Jay Z/ Future collaboration ‘I Got The Keys’ and Khaled keeps the momentum going enlisting two more high profile rappers for the third single off his anticipated forthcoming LP ‘Major Key’.
DJ Khaled previously spoke about the collaboration process at Major Key’s listening party, “I told Kendrick that I needed him to catch the Holy Ghost. No rules, no nothing. I told Big Sean the same thing. After I got the verses I got Ms. Wright., and I gave her some vibes, the tools for this hook. Basically, I told her to go to church”.
“Father help us, police doing target practice with real bodies / Mommas in the streets, crying, standing over a still body,” Big Sean raps on the opening verse touching upon police brutality whilst Kendrick Lamar follows with an equally political and religiously charged verse tapping into his outlandish flow. Soul legend Betty Wright takes Khaled’s notes and goes to town on the chorus over a surging production helmed by Edsclusive & Cool & Dre. Listen below:
