Another terrific yet touching song by DJ Khaled has been dropped on Thursday midnight. The track’s name matches perfectly with what it’s serving, Higher. DJ Khaled paired up with John Legend for the song.
DJ Khaled: the song takes you to a higher level
The song is a part of his new studio album Father of Asahd. The video version of the track features the late Nipsey Hussle. The visuals were shot on a parking structure in California. Higher was Nipsey Hussle’s last project and was filmed a few days before he was shot in LA.
The song starts with Legend playing a grand piano and singing on a tinged hook.
You keep taking me higher and higher, but don’t you know that the devil’s a liar. I know they’d rather see me down, put my soul in the fire.
Nipsey Hussle then follows his lines depicting temptations, inspiration and struggles. His lines reveal,
Looking back at my life make my heart race. Dance with the devil and test our faith, I was thinking chess moves/But it was God’s grace.
DJ Khaled revealed on his twitter account that he suffered deeply with the loss of Nipsey Hussle. His murder lead him to “a soul-searching journey” leading him to share the track .
He seek the blessings of Asghedom family before sharing the track.
