Just hours after the song hit iTunes, DJ Khaled rolls out the video for “Hold You Down” starring Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, and Jeremih. Shot in the Hollywood Hills, the Gil Green-directed clip is a tribute to the ladies who hold it down for their men. Breezy salutes his ride-or-die chick, while Future puts his lady in the Bentley truck.

But it’s Khaled who steals the show with his acting skills.

“You’re smart. You’re loyal. You’re grateful. I appreciate that. Go buy your mom a house. Go guy your whole family houses,” says the We the Best chief as he hands his girl stacks of cash.

Watch Khaled’s Oscar-worthy performance and look out for his upcoming album I Changed A Lot, due this fall.

New Music: DJ Khaled f/ Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, & Jeremih – ‘Hold You Down’

Hold You Down

Another one. After putting it down for the streets on “They Don’t Love You No More,” DJ Khaled caters to the ladies on “Hold You Down,” the second single off his upcoming album I Changed A Lot. The We the Best boss rounds up some of R&B’s leading men for the smooth track featuring Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, and Future.

Breezy promises to hold it down for his ride-or-die chick on his autobiographical verse.

“I had some problems back home / I ain’t wit’ that bullshit at all / Maybe it’s that Virginia in me / Have a young ni**a go so hard / Through it all you stuck with me / Through it all you never ducked off like them cowards when they hit me / Girl I swear to God you the real one and you know it,” he sings.

The fellas shot a video in the Hollywood Hills last month with director Gil Green.

Stream their sweet serenade below.

Everyone from Beyoncé to Drake is doing it, and Chris Brown is the latest superstar to catch Shmurda fever. The R&B singer has posted a video of him dancing to Bobby Shmurda’s viral sensation “Hot Ni**a” while sailing on a yacht in Saint-Tropez.

Breezy is enjoying the summer in the South of France. The “Loyal” singer made a rare trip to Saint-Tropez and Marbella, Spain to host some club gigs this week. While overseas, he rented a yacht and cruised through the French Riviera with some friends.

He shared some snapshots from his vacay on Instagram, writing, “Yacht life! South of France!”

Other celebs including Justin Bieber, Diddy, and Cassie have flocked to the resort town for summer vacation.

After selling his Hollywood Hills home last month, Chris has rented a new crib in Agoura, Calif. The sprawling 8,000-square-foot, 6-bedroom house features an ice cream bar, dance studio, billiard room, tennis court, clubhouse, and enough space to park 75 cars.

But don’t mess with the neighbors. According to TMZ, one of them has threatened to shoot if he catches him trespassing. “It can be the devil. I can care less. I don’t care if they’re having orgies. It can even be Saddam Hussein for all I care, as long as he doesn’t trespass onto my property. If he does, I shoot him,” he said.
