DJ Khaled Had To Have Rihanna For 'Wild Thoughts'

(Radio.com) DJ Khaled just released his 10th album Grateful and he stopped by 97.1 AMP Radio on the night it hit stores to talk about it. The king of anthems, DJ Khaled told us that he was very particular about who would be on his latest track "Wild Thoughts." And that was Rihanna.

"We got in the studio and I had this idea for years. I wanted for it to be the right time but also I had to make sure I put the right artist on there. And I knew, for me to flip this record, I wanted Rihanna. I didn't have a Plan B. So I got Rihanna and shout out to Bryson Tiller."

The success of the track is no surprise to anyone who has heard past records from DJ Khaled. He's the hit maker. One might think that after all the success his ego would take over, but it hasn't. He's still one of the most positive artists out there, as shown on Snapchat & Instagram every day.

"At the end of the day, we have life, imma show love. The more love you put out there, the more love you get back. Love is the key. Love is the answer. Love is the solution," Khaled said. "There's a lot going on in the world. I don't want to get caught up in negative stuff. I'm a father now."

"I can't tell him no. I just got that love," Khaled said of his son. "I'm sure every father in the world has love for their children. That's what so beautiful. It's something you can't really explain unless you're a mother or a father. It's the realist joy, and the realist love ever." Watch the full interview here.

Fifth Harmony Star Reveals The Real 'Fifth Member' of Group

(Radio.com) When Camila Cabello left Fifth Harmony six months ago to pursue a solo career, there was speculation whether she would be replaced or if the band would change their name.

"It was obviously a thought because it was a prevalent thing that there's four of us not five, founding member Lauren Jauregui told MTV News. "Regardless, we were all very united on the fact that we didn't want to change the name."

She went on, 'Fifth Harmony is the name that we grew up with and we worked for and it's our brand. It's who we are. It's our whole entire moments. It's what we spent five years on."

She concluded that even though there are now only four members of the group, there's still an unofficial fifth member. "The fans named us Fifth Harmony, and now they're the fifth member," she said. Read more here.

Singled Out: Sam Rochford's So Easy

Americana singer and songwriter Sam Rochford tells us the story behind her latest single "So Easy". Here is the story:

My little sister got married last year in a really small ceremony. My brother officiated the wedding and she asked me to say something so I could be part of the ceremony too, but I thought it'd be more appropriate to write a song. Once I decided to write a song for the wedding, it was actually very difficult to get it to sound the way I wanted. I wrote 6 or 7 versions of the piece that I scrapped. Everything I was writing about felt too cheesy, too forced, or too disingenuous. I didn't know my sister's husband to be very well at the time so I was trying to write a song about a Disney-esque story of true love and I just hated it.

I actually gave up on writing the song out loud to my boyfriend and decided I would just write a speech because writing the song was too hard. He started referencing dumb inside jokes and tickling me to make me feel better about the song. I started laughing so hard my sides hurt and that's when I realized I was experiencing the type of love I should write about. Real love isn't about two people being perfect for each other, it's about two people accepting each others flaws and putting hard work into a relationship because that's the only way any relationship will last. Once I shifted my mindset it was, pardon my pun, so easy to write the song. I think it took me less than a half and hour and I didn't go back and edit anything.

I was nervous to perform the song for the first time at my sister's wedding. I had only finished the song days before and hadn't really shown it to anybody. I was worried she'd be offended over lines like "I don't mind your bad side as long as you don't mind mine" because it was bringing up her flaws on the day of her wedding, but she loved it. I've seen her change herself for the sake of boyfriends in the past and I could tell this was the real thing, even though I didn't know her husband very well, because she was really being herself. He was accepting her for the person she really was and she was comfortable enough in the relationship to really be herself.

Even though "So Easy" is her wedding song, it's as much about my current relationship as it is about her wedding. I've been in love before and the fatal flaw of all those relationships was that one or both people didn't accept something major about the other person and expected them to eventually change, but that's not how things work!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself right here!
