Jack White is not a fan do DJ Khaled.
Talking about Khaled's performance of single “Wild Thoughts” with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller during the Grammys, White said “It's just Santana's song in its entirety.”
The producer's single samples Santana's 1999 hit “Maria Maria”—a little too heavily for White's taste, apparently.
“It was nice of DJ Khaled to sit down and write and perform and record that – that was good of him!” White continued, using a sarcastic tone. “He's an incredibly talented man. There's no doubt about that. He does so much!”
During another recent interview, Whiteoffered his advice for the well-being of rock music, saying that rock 'n' roll needs “some new young blood” in order to carry the guitar-wielding torch into the next generation.
“Rock 'n' roll needs an injection of some new young blood to really just knock everybody dead right now,” White says. “I think it's brewing and brewing, and it's about to happen. And I think that it's good. Since rock 'n' roll’s inception—every 10, 12 years—there's a breath of fresh air and a new injection of some sort of what you could I guess call 'punk attitude' or something like that, a wildness.”
