The third time is it for DJ Khaled and Drake. Khaled dropped his three-peat collabo with Drake on Monday morning (June 5), the frenetic “To The Max,” which features a skittering beat and cut-up female vocals under Drizzy’s lines about love, loyalty and perseverance. “I talk grey, I don’t keep it white and black/ Only say ‘I love you’ just so I can hear it back/ Sometimes, other times I’d love to have you back/ Can’t think of a night that we ain’t turn up to the max/ To the max, no,” Drake raps over the dubstep-like beat.
The chorus features a simple mantra: “My youngins and we/ All of my youngins and we lit/ My youngins and we/ All of my youngins and we lit.” The song is the third we’ve heard so far from Khaled’s latest, following on the heels of the Jay Z and Beyoncé-blessed “Shining” and the No. 1 summer smash “I’m the One” featuring Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Quavo.
The single’s art features a triumphant pic of Khaled’s son Asahd; Grateful will be released on June 23 on Epic Records.
