DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper & Quavo’s “No Brainer” Is A Summer Anthem
Last year DJ Khaled landed a serious hit with his star-studded “I’m The One.” After recruiting the likes of Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, Quavo and Lil Wayne, the quintet topped the Billboard Hot 100. The accompanying video was viewed more than one billion times, and the anthem was a serious contender for the title of Song of the Summer. Today (July 27), the super-producer pulled off the unthinkable. He managed to get the group (excluding Weezy) back together on his new single, “No Brainer.” Since officially announcing the release last week fans have speculated if they would be able to replicate the success of their first outing. Now that the song has dropped, it is clear that they have another serious hit on their hands.
Following in the footsteps of “I’m The One,” their latest is a vibrant bop. On it they trade off verses while Bieber and Khaled take the reins on the chorus. There, the “Sorry” crooner delivers some flirty lines to a potential fling. “You stick out of the crowd, baby. It’s a no brainer. It ain’t that hard to choose. Him or me, be for real, baby, it’s a no brainer,” he confidently announces over the buoyant production. It sounds like they may have another number one single on their hands, and they definitely have another viral video to support it. With a variety of set pieces and a large cast, it is another impressive release.
With the right push, “No Brainer” may eclipse the group’s first release. It looks like the summery smash will land on Khaled’s forthcoming album, Father of Asahd. His son, Asahd Khaled, acted as executive producer on the project. It follows last year’s Grateful, which topped the Billboard 200 and spawned a trio of radio hits including “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller. Check out “No Brainer” below.
