DJ Khaled Releases New Single 'Shining' & Yep, That's Jay Z & Beyonce On The Track
If you didn't get enough Beyoncé and Jay Z at the Grammys on Sunday night — and honestly, can there ever be enough of those two? — then boy, do I have news for you. Following the biggest night of music of the year, DJ Khaled released his new single, "Shining," which includes guest spots from Mr. and Mrs. Carter on the track. And after the night Beyoncé had, performing and sweeping up a couple of the awards out of the many she was nominated for, he couldn't have picked a more perfect time to drop the song.
In fact, Queen Bey herself is pretty heavily featured on the single, with Jay Z offering up a verse of his own. He raps about his future "twin babies," mentioning that he's hoping for a boy and a girl (although he's "cool" with whatever they turn out to be) which would be seriously exciting. The father of three to be also raps about his own success, including his 12 solo albums going platinum, just in case you'd forgotten that he and his wife are basically the definition of a power couple.
Honestly, the only thing this track is missing is Blue Ivy, but she was probably busy that day anyway.
Since Khaled was recently on tour with Beyoncé, it seems like the next natural step that they ended up hitting the studio to collaborate on this one. I'm hoping that this means there's more music from them in the future, because I'm definitely a fan of this single.
And if you're wondering where to listen, you have a couple of options. Obviously, the song is streaming on Tidal, but if you're not into Jay Z's answer to online music, it's also available on Apple Music to both stream and purchase.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to listen to this song on repeat for the rest of the day, and if you have ears, you'll probably do the same. It's so good, guys. But it's Beyoncé, so what did you expect?
