There's no denying that DJ Khaled knows how to lace a hit. Yesterday (March 26), Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex premiered the first taste of Khaled's sixth studio album, "Kiss the Ring," titled "Take it to the Head."
Khaled recruits a start-studded line-up for The Runners produced cut: Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Nicki MInaj, and Chris Brown. The singer, currently climbing the charts himself with "Turn Up the Music" and Rihanna's "Birthday Cake" remix, comes in for the track's hook. "Take it to the head/ Don't think about it, be about it/ Dont' be scared to take it to the head/ Girl you're fly but if I tell you you might/ Take it to the head," Brown sings.
"Kiss the Ring," due this summer, will arrive a year after Khaled's Billboard 200 No. 5 album, "We the Best Forever." Khaled's top five album also spawned his first R&B/Hip-Hop Songs No.1, "I'm On One," which Khaled told The Juice was "special." "This song has a special story because I've been trying to get Drake to do a verse on my album for… it took me like a whole full year. In a good positive way, nothing negative," Khaled told The Juice. "Just his schedule, his creative process to get things done. Actually Drake was heavily involved. Actually he blessed me as well as Ross, Lil Wayne, just the whole team."
