"I Wanna Be with You" is a song by American record producer DJ Khaled featuring American rapper Nicki Minaj and American rappers Future and Rick Ross. It was released on August 2, 2013 by We the Best Music Group, Cash Money Records, and Republic Records as the second single from Khaled's seventh studio album Suffering from Success (2013). The song was written and produced by Khaled and Lee On the Beats, with additional songwriting provided by Future, Minaj, and Ross. It peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles component chart, representing the twenty-five songs that failed to reach the flagship Billboard Hot 100, and reached number 30 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.


On July 25, 2013, DJ Khaled publicly proposed to fellow Cash Money Records labelmate Nicki Minaj through a video uploaded onto the website for television network MTV; he additionally offered her a ten-carat Rafaello & Co. engagement ring, valued at approximately $500,000.[1] He later reaffirmed his proposal during an interview with DJ Felli Fel of Power 106,[2] although Minaj later stated that his offer was not intended to be taken seriously.[3] The same day, Flex premiered Khaled's new single, titled "I Wanna Be with You" which featured Minaj, as well as frequent collaborators Future and Rick Ross. This lead some to believe that his proposal was a "publicity stunt" to promote his new single.[4][5] Shortly after the songs release, Khaled confirmed it was all a joke and a way to introduce the record.[6]
