Khaled and Drake’s new song is called “To The Max,” and comes after months of Khaled teasing us on social media. He’s shown several videos with him asking various members of his staff and even fans asking his signature “Are the Drake vocals in yet?” Last week, he confirmed that the vocals were indeed in, and that the song was on the way.
“I talk grey, I don't keep it white and black,” Drizzy raps. “Only say ‘I love you’ just so I can hear it back./ Sometimes, other times I'd love to have you back./...Can't think of a night that we ain't turn up to the max./To the max, no./ Like the album just went platinum, yeah./ Turnt up to the max. /If they pop somebody's chain then we gotta get it back./ No discussion to be had, we ain't goin' out like that. /Man, we lit.”
"To The Max" is Khaled's third song from Grateful. "I'm The One" with Chance the Rapper, Quavo, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne has already hit no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and gone platinum, with the previous single "Shining" featuring Jay Z and Beyonce.
