DJ Khaled Snags R&B’s Leading Men for ‘Hold You Down’: Listen
By Marissa G. Muller
DJ Khaled is going big on his eighth album, I Changed Alot.
First he shared “They Don’t Love You No More,” with verses from Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill and French Montana. Now, on its followup, he’s joined by R&B heavyweights Future, Chris Brown, Jeremih and August Alsina.
The second single goes out to all of the ladies with his motley crew of backup partners singing wooing verses over a shiny beat.
Future manages to drop four car references within the span of his verse — highlight: “Your body my new Bugatti” — while, on a more somber note, Brown slyly references his rocky past: “I had some problems back home (so I heated up) I ain’t with that bulls**t at all (then I laid it down).”
Brown’s verse aside, the track is a sweet love letter to the guys’ ladies and a solid second single for DJ Khaled.
DJ Khaled hasn’t set a release date for I Changed Alot yet, but stay tuned.
