THE ORIGINAL DATVEGASGYRL’S REVIEW OF DJ KHALED’S GRATEFUL

Dj Khaled will definitely own the summer with this

Intro featuring Sizzla- With the intro you can tell the setting is an island soca theme. You don’t hear from Khaled until almost 3 minutes into the intro where he wastes no time mentioning his inspiration Asahd Khaled.

Shining featuring Beyonce and Jay-Z – this has been the theme for the winter/spring also the intro to the Carter twins. We know this song, we love this song… I smile through all four seasons. Oooh noo don’t tryta slow me down…. one ain’t enough I need two … if I have a boy Imma fool… send em to school with all of my jewels! Danja did this track justice.

To The Max featuring Drake – Teairra Marie gets writers credit on this solo track with Champagne Papi. Not a strand out track by any means. Feels more of a throw away track for More Life. Cool and Dre produced beat is definitely not their best arrangement. Skip worthy

Wild Thoughts featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller – I mean how do you go wrong with the Santana and Wyclef Jean sample. Of course Rih is the ultimate star on this summer club banger but Bryson holds his own against the Badgyal.

I’m The One featuring Justin Bieber Quavo Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne– The first platinum single from the album. Putting the Biebs and Quavo on one of the hottest Caribbean beats by Nic Nac (Chris Brown’s Loyalty) is a sure banger. Chance’s bars go toe to toe with veteran Lil Wayne… We just watching Netflix she ain’t got no cable ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ .

On Everything featuring Travis Scott, Rick Ross and Big Sean- the beat is definitely the star on the 3rd single by Danja. Big Sean steals the show as expected bars wise but this track is tailor fit for Travis. Rumors have it this is Sean’s clap back to Kendrick Lamar. I got Khaled fucking with me plus I got the keys to the city … lil nigga


It’s Secured featuring Nas and Travis Scott– the unofficial 4th single. Nas’ lyrics are totally off on this Cool and Dre track. Truthfully this was Travis’ song. Nas’ lyrics are lost in the beat. But never think his lyrics are overlooked. He’s still one of the best to ever put pen to pad but this one is skip worthy.

Interlude (Hallelujah) Betty Wright- Come on its Betty Wright… nothing else to be said

Nobody featuring Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj– another Cool and Dre track with 808-Ray. This track has a definite gospel feel to it. Perfect for the title of the album. Alicia takes center stage. Nicki is an after thought. Her attempt at positivity and female equality seems forced. Thank God they had THE foresight to allow us to be subjected to only one verse on this track.

I Love You So Much featuring Chance the Rapper – produced strictly by Khaled this is why he’s the king of the summer. This track dedicated to his son Asahd and Chance’s daughter is so beautiful and kid friendly it’s just sweet as pie. Especially the hip hop alphabets๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ . You can’t even be mad at this one. Personally I think it would’ve been better positioned at the end.

Don’t Quit featuring Jeremih & Travis Scott– I’m liking this Travis and Jeremih combo. Its refreshing on some level. Calvin Harris murders this track for real. Mark my words he’s going to own hip hop in 2018.

I Cant Even Lie featuring Future and Nicki Minaj- Now (Nicki’s bars on this jawn ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ . Did Safaree slip this under her hotel door. Even Future’s hook is on point. Danja killed the beat. It’s a movie. Definitely a stand out track.

Down for Life featuring Kodak Black Party Next Door Future Travis Scott and Rick Ross- Lee on the Beats is the wizard on this jawn. Future and Khaled have formed a great partnership sorta like #Timbaland and Aaliyah…. he rides his compilations with ease. Rick Ross is still Rozay on this. The surprise star on this one is Kodak Black. He definitely has a lil bar game about himself.

Major Bag Alert featuring Migos- Quavo does double duty on this one in front Of The Mic and behind it. Throw away track that didn’t make it on Culture 2

Good Man featuring Pusha T and Jadakiss-just give this one ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏ the lyrics are above par…. Cool and Dre did their Shit on this track. Pusha deads any talk about Malice being the one who got away. And come in Kiss…. if I get too deep don’t let me down yall…. started moving that Daddy Kane and that Nikki D… had nypd sick of me๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ #StellarTrack

Billy Ocean featuring Fat Joe and RaeKwon– I’ll sum this one up in one sentence. A Throw away old school Roc a Fella compilation song…. dated asf. Dj Khaled pulled full production duties on this one and it shows. Skip Worthy

Pull a Caper featuring Kodak Black Gucci Mane and Rick Ross- I was interested in seeing how Danny Boy was going to freak this track. I would’ve liked to see another Florida rapper on this track. Trina would’ve freaked it. It’s not a bad song just not good arrangement.

That Range Rover Came with Steps featuring Future and Yo Gotti- this song just gave me more credence to my feeling that Gotti is a poor man’s Gucci. Sorry never been a fan. Skip Worthy

Iced Out My Khaled Arms featuring Future Migos T.I and 21 Savage- Honestly one of the hardest tracks on the double album. Tip is right at home with his Atlanta counterparts. When you hear If metro don’t trust you….. you already know it’s about to be litty! Top 5 on the double album.

Whatever featuring Future Young Thug Rick Rock and 2 Chainz- my grandma saw me buy my first polo sweater.

Interlude featuring Belly-

Unchanging Love featuring Movado
