DJ Khaled and Calvin Harris are doing very similar things in 2017. Both acts are collecting various performers for their songs, and both are looking to perfect the art of the single. "Don't Quit" is the first collaboration between Khaled and Harris, and to be honest, it sounds a lot more like an outtake from Harris' upcoming album than what Khaled is generally known for. The secret weapon here is Starrah, who Harris has collaborated with on recent singles "Feels" and "Heatstroke" as well. It's impossible to know exactly which parts the songwriter lent her pen to, but there's a good chance she had something to do Travis' warm lead melody. Between this and Major Lazer's "Know No Better," Scott has proven himself as a charismatic vocalist in the pop lane. Jeremih, who's also worked with Starrah in the past, is only present for the song's bridge, but he makes a lasting impression. Both Harris and Khaled have earned huge radio singles in the past, and "Don't Quit" feels like a perfect formula for yet another summer smash.
Listen to Khaled's Grateful album in its entirety.
My lil' baby on thick, thick
Girl that ass too fat, so don't quit
You know I like it like that, don't quit
You're doin' good right now, don't quit
Put your old jeans on, now they won't fit
