DJ Khaled releases his song, "No Brainer," his collaboration with Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, and Migos member Quavo. The track is featured in the Father of Asahd album.
The quartet's collaboration mostly featured DJ Khaled's vocals, but each of the other artists received enough airtime on the song. "No Brainer" also received criticisms from multiple fans and experts. Some of them said that they had high expectations for DJ Khaled especially after the success of "I'm the One."
'No Brainer' Criticized
The Four: Battle for Stardom judge also enlisted some of the biggest names in the music industry, but they also failed to impress the critics. For instance, Quavo cookie-cutter pop style did not resonate well with his supporters. After all, the rapper is known for releasing some of the most successful mixtapes today.
One publication also called the new song "recycled territory" because its tune was quite similar to other songs that were released in recent weeks. DJ Khaled even promoted "No Brainer" during last week's episode of The Four: Battle for Stardom, but the track did not live up to its hype.
