We all knew that Wild Thoughts would be the song of summer. What we didn’t know is that it would be DJ Khaled’s most successful single.
Having recently received a Platinum plaque for the Rihanna and Bryson Tiller assisted anthem, DJ Khaled is still winning with a new gift that he just received from legendary guitarist Carlos Santa.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, DJ Khaled heavily samples the 1999 hit Santa song, ‘Maria, Maria, Maria.’ The orgianal creator of the now revamped 2017 record, Carlos Santana sent over a signed guitar to the 4-time VMA nominee Khaled.
Showing his gratitude for the massive impact that ‘Wild Thoughts’ has made on 2017, Santana thanked the DJ with the gift and included a hand-written letter.
Peep DJ Khaled’s ‘Thank You’ video below:
