"Wild Thoughts" is a hip hop song by American musician DJ Khaled featuring Barbadian singer Rihanna and American singer Bryson Tiller. It was released on June 16, 2017, by We the Best and Epic Records as the third single from Khaled's tenth studio album, Grateful (2017). Canadian singer PartyNextDoor assisted the artists in writing the song, with production handled by Khaled. A mid-tempo Latin-inspired song, "Wild Thoughts" consists of Latin percussion, acoustic guitar lines and riffs that are heavily sampled from the 1999 hit single "Maria Maria" by American Latin rock band Santana. Lyrically, the song praises a lover who inspires wild thoughts, and featured various innuendos and carnal statements. Several critics praised its composition and Rihanna for commanding the song, however others felt that song was too similar to the original "Maria Maria". Commercially, the song reached number one in the United Kingdom, marking Khaled's second and Rihanna's ninth number one. The original performers of "Maria Maria"; Santana and The Product G&B also reacted positively to the song stating the singers brought a "new dimension" to it. The song also saw chart success in Australia and Canada, where it peaked at number two. The song peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Rihanna's thirty-first top ten song, Khaled's third, and Tiller's first. The music video for the song was directed by Colin Tilley and was shot in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Miami, Florida. The music video was nominated in three categories at the MTV Video Music Awards for Video of the Year, Best Collaboration and Best Art Direction.
