Charted: 78

Songfacts®:

  • DJ Khaled enlisted Kanye West and Rick Ross for the second single from his sixth album, Kiss The Ring. It is a follow-up of sorts to "Cold," Khaled and Yeezy's last collaboration, which was recorded for the GOOD Music collaborative studio album, Cruel Summer.
  • The song was produced by Chauncey "Hit-Boy" Hollis whose other credits include Lil Wayne's "Drop The World" and Jay-Z & Kanye West's "Niggas In Paris."
  • Through the lens of a very shaky camera, "Cold" director Hype Williams helmed the clip that has West and Khaled rapping in a tunnel with Rick Ross.
