In 1999, legendary music executive Clive Davis recruited Wyclef Jean to collaborate with Santana. The result was “Maria Maria,” a Westside Story-inspired anthem featuring R&B duo, The Product G&B. The track spent 10 weeks atop Billboard’s Hot 100 and won a Grammy.
18 years later, “Maria Maria” returned to the spotlight when DJ Khaled sampled and interpolated it for the Rihanna and Bryson Tiller-assisted “Wild Thoughts.” It, like “Maria Maria,” was also a top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit.
On Mass Appeal’s new Off The Record episode, Wyclef recalls the making of both “Maria Maria” and “Wild Thoughts.” “At the end of the day, Khaled did the same thing I did with The Fugees,” Wyclef says.
DJ Khaled has rolled out his new single “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, along with an accompanying video. The tropical-themed visual finds the trio dancing and partying it up in the streets of Little Haiti, Miami.
