The reason why DJ Khaled popped the question with a $500,000 engagement ring is because he and Nicki collaborated on a new song off his upcoming album. Listen to ‘I Wanna Be With You’ and tell us what you think!

We were all duped for the sake of a hot new song! DJ Khaled has just released his second single off of his upcoming album Suffering From Success, aptly titled: “I Wanna Be With You.” The song features Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Future. This comes just days after DJ Khaled made headlines for proposing to Nicki and it appears it was all done as a promotional stunt for this romantic song. Do you think the hype was worth it for this new single?

DJ Khaled Releases New Single With Nicki Minaj

The single follows the success of his recent song “No New Friends” which features Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick. But this song is all about love. Nicki is prominently featured singing about how she wants to be with this guy and you have Future and Rick singing about romancing the ladies too. Towards the end you hear a bit from DJ Khaled but he’s mainly responsible for mixing the beats of the song.

But it answers the question as to why he did that over-the-top proposal to Nicki. He gave a sweet yet lengthy speech to MTV on July 25 about why Nicki needs to tie-the-knot with him and how they are both suffering from success. It all makes sense now and it was definitely well played.

DJ Khaled Explains His Feelings For Nicki

After the proposal, DJ Khaled did a bunch of interviews and continued to play along to his own joke.

“I ain’t a young boy no more,” he told Los Angeles radio station Power 106. “I’m on my thinking the future. I just had to be honest. She’s my friend, of course. And I like her. [But] it’s more than a crush. She might say yeah tonight or tomorrow, she might say yeah next year. What am I gonna do, give up? Never. I ain’t never give up on nothing I do.” That being, Khaled also stated that if Nicki rejects him, he’ll take it in stride.”

It looks like the joke was on us! DJ Khaled’s album drops Sept. 17. Listen to the new song and tell us what you think.

Now this is a tight, off the radar record with heavy hitters taking love to another level in hip-hop. Even the concept is nice, sweet, and mellow. Splurging is not better than expressing true feelings on a track that everyone can enjoy together. I can just imagine the video shoot will be another great one! Khaled, you’ve done it yet again. Way to go Future, Rozay, and the Knockout Queen–no longer princess from Queens. From York to the Bay to the A to MIA; WE THE BEST!!!!! Thanks for the motivation, Khaled. We all are going to be great at something as long as God is still on the throne.

Wait Wait Wait. So is the proposal real or fake? I read some other websites and Nicki was with ring. What is happening?!?!?! If it really is fake, he just took the hole meaning of romantic proposal and made it a joke. This is really screwed up >:(
