Medasin transforms DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller’s ‘Wild Thoughts’ with a futuristic remix
“They” might not want you to hear this remix — but we do.
DJ Khaled struck gold with “Wild Thoughts,” a sultry number off of his latest album, Grateful. Since its release as a lead single from Khaled’s tenth studio album on June 16, “Wild Thoughts” has attracted remixes just as quickly as it has climbed the charts, receiving remakes from Bee’s Knees and hip hop/R&B artists such as Tory Lanez and Trey Songz. Medasin’s remix rounds out an already expansive collection, putting a futuristic twist on the Latin pop-infused song.
Medasin swaps the rhythmic Latin elements of the song borrowed from Carlos Santana’s “Maria Maria” for a future bass drop that transforms Wild Thoughts from a smooth hip hop tune to a complex electronic number, a transition that is by no means easy, yet is handled remarkably well by Medasin, making his Wild Thoughts remix nearly indistinguishable from the original, yet just as intoxicating.
