No Brainer

Album: Father of Asahd (2018)
Charted: 3 5

Songfacts®:

  • Here, DJ Khaled links up with Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, and Quavo. The Miami mogul hooked up with the same roster of collaborators, plus Lil Wayne on "I'm the One," which debuted at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May 2017.
  • The song's title comes from Justin Bieber's infectious chorus where he sings about finding love.

    You stick out of the crowd, baby, it's a no-brainer
    It ain't that hard to choose
    And I mean, bein' real, baby, it's a no-brainer
    You got your mind on loose


    The expression "no-brainer," meaning something really obvious, originated in the United States in the early 1970s.
