Major key alert!
DJ Khaled has announced the title of his upcoming 12th studio album, Khaled Khaled. He shared an epic trailer comprised of highlights from his life and career, including his live shows, the birth of his sons, and winning his first Grammy.
“MY ALBUM TITLE: KHALED KHALED,” Khaled captioned the video. “MY 12th STUDIO ALBUM GOD IS THE GREATEST ALBUM MODE.”
The first two singles, or “keys” as Khaled calls them, both feature Drake and will be released on Thursday night. One is titled “Popstar,” while the second is called “Greece.”
“SOME BOY DEM MAKE POP CHUNE WE MAKE CHUNE THAT GO POP! POP PON THEY HEAD!!” said Khaled.
“Greece,” which previously leaked, finds Drake serenading a special lady. “Come with me, leave all of your things, yeah / We can stop at Gucci, stop at Louis V, yeah / Come with me, fly you out to Greece / Full speed, survoler Paris,” he sings.
Khaled teased his Drake collaborations during a recent appearance on N.O.R.E.’s “Drink Champs” podcast. “Drake is definitely on DJ Khaled’s single and the vocals sound so incredible,” said Khaled. “The frequency of that motherfu**er, the sonics, the way that shit sound, it’s incredible.”
Khaled Khaled marks the follow-up to last year’s Father of Asahd, which spawned the Grammy-winning hit “Higher” with Nipsey Hussle and John Legend.
