Whiz Khalifa Samples Empire Of The Sun’s Classic On “The Thrill”




Wiz Khalifa returns and drops off a revamp of one of his early breakout singles from 2009 entitled “The Thrill.”


The new song samples Australian electronic music duo Empire By The Sun’s iconic track “walking On A Dream“. Wiz recently spoke on how special the track is to him.


“‘The Thrill’ is a really special song to me because I seen that one grow from the ground up,” he explains. “I remember being at a low key show at a college and one of the kids told me about the song and he said ‘man you’ll be that dude if you sample the song.’ So I immediately went home, started thinking of some bars, went to the studio, and recorded it.”


Empire Of The Sun who received 11 nominations at the ARIA Music Awards of 2009 for the song also chimed in on Wiz Khalifa’s new release.


Walking On A Dream’ is a song that morphs and transcends so many emotions and musical plains that it’s great to hear it alive in another world, Wiz’s world,” the group stated in a press release.
