DJ Khaled "We Takin' Over" (2007)
Kevin Rudolf "Let It Rock" (2008)
Where They Sound The Same: The production. Add some guitar top of "We Takin' Over" and you've basically got the "Let It Rock" beat.
With Akon, T.I., Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Birdman and Lil Wayne all contributing to Khaled's infectious "We Takin' Over" single, there was plenty of star power, but Tunechi got the final word, and the last verse on the track is one of Wayne's most memorable. That was back in 2007, and less than two years later we got Cash Money's Kevin Rudolf going in with Wayne on "Let It Rock." With such a simliar beat, it almost feels like Lil Wayne said, "Let's do something like 'We Takin' Over,' but with guitars and not all those other guys." But hey, it worked. "Let It Rock" beat out "We Takin' Over" on the charts, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
