On Friday, DJ Khaled released what is sure to be this summer’s anthem. His newest song, “I’m the One,” features pop superstar Justin Beiber, master of hooks, Quavo, the rap world’s newest phenom, Chance the Rapper, and hip hop god Lil Wayne.

It’s reminiscent of hits like “Bedrock,” produced by Young Money records, and “Forever,” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Eminem.

The chrous is catchy and easy to remember, making it a surefire drinking song that everyone at the bar or party will sing along to.

Each featured artists puts their own style into their verse, beginning with Quavo.

A member of the popular hip-hop trio out of North Atlana, Migos, Quavo has an incredibly recognizable sound, and is fresh off his feature on Drake’s new top-ten hit, “Portland.”

Chance the Rapper, an artist who has been all over the charts since the release of his third EP last summer, sings the second featured verse.

The line that has stood out so far to fans all across the internet won’t fail to put a smile on the face of anyone who truly enjoys Chance as an artist as it reads, “When I met her in the club I asked her who she felt, then she went and put that booty on the Gucci belt.”

The immediate popularity of the line led the rapper to post on Twitter saying, “The video just reminded me to grab more belts for tour #imtheone.”

The final verse in the song belows to the one and only Weezy.

His incredibly unique sound shines bright, and so does his rhyming ability when he ends four consecutive lines with the word body.
