Today, DJ Khaled unveils his twelfth — yes, twelfth — studio LP KHALED KHALED, which sees a wealth of appearances from Jeremih, Lil Wayne, Lil Durk, Lil Baby, Cardi B, H.E.R., Migos, 21 Savage, Justin Bieber, Drake (who contributed with the dual singles “GREECE” and “POPSTAR”), Big Sean, Justin Timberlake, Meek Mill, Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, and plenty more. By now, you’ve probably heard the album’s most glaring standout “SORRY NOT SORRY,” which sees some legendary contributions from Nas, JAY-Z, and Harmonies By The Hive — a now obvious nod to JAY-Z’s wife Beyoncé.
Added to the iconic song — which also sees assists from James Fauntleroy — is a matching visual courtesy of Hype Williams. The clip is as timeless as one would expect, with the three hip hop veterans seen fully suited up while enjoying a night in the casino. Elsewhere, the collaborators are spotted in front of a wall covered with foliage — a clear indication of the flowers they’ve continued to receive throughout their illustrious careers.
KHALED KHALED follows 2019’s Father of Asahd, an album that narrowly lost to Tyler, The Creator’s IGOR for the top spot of the Billboard 200 during its first week of release. That body of work also boasted well-received singles like “Top Off” with JAY-Z, Future, and Beyoncé, “No Brainer” with Justin Bieber, Chance The Rapper, and Quavo, “Higher” with Nipsey Hussle and John Legend, “Just Us” with SZA, and “You Stay” with Meek Mill, J Balvin, Lil Baby, and Jeremih.
“I’ve never worked with Andre 3000. I’m his friend, we’ve talked several times. He cleared my sample for my last album. I wanna work with Andre ... I wanna do something with Dr. Dre, I always told Dre. Me and Dre have talked several times and he told me, ‘When you’re ready, come check me.’”
