Stream Dj Khaled & Will Smith “Friend Like Me”
Dj Khaled is more with more juice as he links up with legendary rapper and iconic actor Will Smith For “Friend Like Me“, a soundtrack from the forthcoming Aladdin Movie.
The iconic Dj, who just recently released his much anticipated “Father of Asahd” project last week, 17th may, has being really busy since then, coming through with new projects every other day up till these moment. immediately after the release of the project, he joined Paul Rudd on NBC for the sketch comedy series on SNL. A performance which Khaled brought out Lil Wayne and Big Sean for ‘Jealous’ and Meek Mill, Jeremih, J Balvin and Lil Baby for ‘You Stay’. He later came back for ‘Just Us’ with SZA and paid a tribute to Nipsey Hussle with John Legend on the keys for ‘Higher’
He has also release more than five music videos for the project and just when we felt it was all coming to an end he links up with Will Smith for “Friend Like Me”, two versions of the song have actually being released, a Will Smith only version and there’s another rap version titled ‘Friend Like Me (End Title)’ which features DJ Khaled.
“I went into the studio the first day and I really wanted to play with it to see if I could add something to it,” Smith said in the press release. “Literally 30 minutes in the studio, and started to play with the song [and] the 94/96 BPM range. That BPM range is right old school hip hop. So I grabbed The Honey Drippers ‘Impeach Your President’ and I had them throw that breakbeat under there. I messed around with that. And I messed around with Erik B. & Rakim’s ‘I Know You Got Soul’ under ‘Friend Like Me.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my god, I’m home!’ I started playing with the hip hop flavor, and the Genie was really born in my mind from the music.”
The movie is scheduled to be in cinema’s May 24.
