DJ Khaled, ‘I’m On One’ Feat. Drake, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne – Song Review
Though everyone receives equal billing, the star here is Drake, who both sings and raps for nearly two minutes before anyone else shows up to join the party.
Atop electro whooshes and a down-tempo beat that recalls his hit ‘Find Your Love,’ Drake rhymes about those who might consider trying to take his place:
“Get it while you here, boy / Cause all that hype don’t feel the same next year, boy / Yeah, and I’ll be right here in my spot with a little more cash than I already got / Trippin’ off you cause you had your shot.”
Unfortunately, when it comes to enlisting his friends, it seems the DJ just doesn’t know when to stop. Including the unremarkable verses from Ross and Wayne just waters down ‘I’m On One,’ when it would’ve been stronger with Drake alone.
‘We the Best Forever’ will be Khaled’s fifth release but first on new label Universal Motown. Nicki Minaj and Kanye West are also expected to appear on the record.
