Feeling down because Queen Bey didn’t win “Album of the Year”? Then here’s something to cheer you up :)
Almost immediately after the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, DJ Khaled (real name Khaled Mohamed Khaled) dropped a surprise single, titled “Shining”, on Tidal and it features Beyoncé and Jay Z! Also, the single’s cute artwork shows the music maker’s infant son, Asahd Tuck Khaled, in a black tuxedo.
This is Beyoncé and Jay Z first collaboration together since “Drunk in Love” in 2013. The track starts off with a simple hook from Queen Bey. “Shinin’, shinin’, shinin’, shinin’, yeah,” she sings in the first part of the chorus.
“All of this winnin’, I’ve been losin’ my mind, yeah/ Oh, hold on, hold on, baby/ Don’t try to/ Slow me down/ Don’t try to/ Slow me down,” she continues.
Then, Jay Z can be heard rapping about his family and success (read: 21 Grammys and 12 platinum albums). “21 Grammys I’m a savage nigga,” he raps over DJ Khaled upbeat tunes.
It was reported that “Shining” will be included in DJ Khaled’s upcoming album, “Grateful”, which will be his 10th studio album. His 2016 album, “Major Key”, received a Grammy nomination for “Best Rap Album”.
