RECORD OF THE WEEK || ‘Shining’ by DJ Khaled ft Beyonce & Jay Z

RECORD OF THE WEEK || ‘Shining’ by DJ Khaled ft Beyonce and Jay Z

 

Shortly after the 59th Grammy awards, DJ Khaled released a brand new single called ‘Shining’ that features two of music heavy weights Beyonce and Jay Z. 

The track’s artwork (photo above) is actually an adorable photo of Khaled’s infant son Asahd Tuck Khaled.

While the Grammys were great for Jay and Bey who are expecting twins, this jam is a good look for the snap chat king since this power couple last featured on a song back in 2013 (‘Drunk in love’).

His album ‘Major Key’ was nominated for Best Album of the year at this year’s Grammys which is no mean feat regardless of the fact that he lost it to Chance the rapper.

 

Enjoy this brand new banger as it plays out as your record of the week and in case you didn’t know them, here are the official lyrics.

Don’t let me have a son, I’m a fool (ooooh)
Send him to school in all my jewels
I want a boy and girl I fight for truth
Whatever God give me, I’m cool
I’ve been winnin’ so long it’s like alchemy
I’ve been playin’ cards with the house money
21 Grammys, I’m a savage nigga
21 Grammys, I’m a savage nigga
I shouldn’t even worry ’bout with niggas
12 solo albums, all Platinum, nigga
I know y’all ain’t, ain’t talkin’ numbers, right?
I know y’all ain’t, ain’t talkin’ Summers, right?
I know you ain’t walkin’ ’round talkin’ down
Sayin’ boss shit when you a runner, right?
Plain Patek, been had it
Flooded when I got it from Khaled
That was just a thank you for his last year
Next year he gon’ have to buy a palace, shinin’
