Watch now: DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller share "Wild Thoughts" in new visual

Ethan Miller/Getty Images via ABCRihanna and Bryson Tiller elevate DJ Khaled's "We the Best" catchphrase to a whole new level in the producer's new video for "Wild Thoughts."

Set on the streets of Miami, the steamy Colin Tilley-directed clip also features Khaled and 8-month-old son Asahd, who's also credited as co-executive producer on his pop's forthcoming disc, Grateful.  

And if the instrumentals of "Wild Thoughts" sound familiar, that because Khaled's used a sample of Carlos Santana's 1999 hit track "Maria Maria" for it.   

As for working for with RiRi on the track and visual, Khaled tells ABC Radio that just being able to collaborate with the superstar was "a special situation" for him, and he promises fans the song "will be your jam".

"My fans, when they see this and hear this, it's gonna be one of them anthems. It's gonna be played worldwide. It's gonna be a number-one record," Khaled says. 

In regard to also collaborating with Bryson on "Wild Thoughts," Khaled declares, "I like working with Bryson Tiller. He's a humble kid. I've been blessed to see him from the beginning, meaning as in, when he first went national, I was blessed to be there to see it, feel it, hear it.

You can hear "Wild Thoughts" on Grateful, which arrives everywhere June 23.
