The vocals are all in and after much anticipation, DJ Khaled drops his blockbuster 12th studio album Khaled Khaled. Executive produced by his sons Asahd and Aalam, the 14-track set features appearances from the biggest names in music including Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Post Malone, Big Sean, Lil Baby, Bryson Tiller, Puff Daddy, Justin Timberlake, and Cardi B, who was a last-minute addition.
In addition to last summer’s Drake-assisted hits “Popstar” and “Greece,” Justin Bieber and 21 Savage team up on “Let It Go,” while H.E.R. and Migos collide on “We Going Crazy.” Elsewhere, Bryson Tiller, Lil Baby, and Roddy Ricch join forces on “Body in Motion.”
But the most anticipated collaboration is the pairing of JAY-Z and Nas on “Sorry Not Sorry.” On their first collaboration in 13 years, the rap legends aim to inspire, while James Fauntleroy and Beyoncé aka The Hive bless the track with vocals. Khaled has also debuted an epic video, directed by Hype Williams.
According to Khaled, the project has been 15 years in the making. “I wanted to make an album called Khaled Khaled before I ever made my first album, but I knew it would have to come at a certain time,” he told Billboard. “Now it’s time for the new chapter, the evolving of Khaled Khaled, So I gave you my all on Khaled Khaled because I want you to know that we not going nowhere. We here forever.”
