So nice, he had to name it twice. DJ Khaled has officially announced his new album. Khaled Khaled, his 12th studio album is headed our way.
Khaled took to Instagram to give us the major key news — “MY ALBUM TITLE: KHALED KHALED MY 12th STUDIO ALBUM 🤲🏽 GOD IS THE GREATEST ALBUM MODE 🔑😤,” accompanied by a video, highlighting just a few of the biggest and best moments of his life and career, including some live shows, winning his first GRAMMY and the birth of his sons, Asahd, 3, and Aalam, 5 months, whom he actually gave the albums executive producer credits to.
Khaled teased that album art was up next, and he made good on that promise. Just one hour after the album news dropped, Khaled let us know we have not just one, but two singles coming our way, and they both feature Drake. What!? Is it our birthday!?
The announcement of “POPSTAR” was up first, the artwork had Khalid looking all kinds of regal posing with an owl holding two keys in its beak sitting effortlessly on his shoulder.
Khaled shared his excitement over the track "SOME BOY DEM MAKE POP CHUNE WE MAKE CHUNE THAT GO POP! POP PON THEY HEAD!!," adding, "Great to collaborate wit the team prod @ozmusiqe we work AMAZING together ALSO BIG UP @ovo40 @ovonoel @chubbsview @futuretheprince @oliverelkhatib always great to work wit the OVO team. WE WORK AMAZING TOGETHER! DRAKE LUV FOREVER !”
“POPSTAR” got the star treatment and it’s very own trailer co-starring Spanish actor/filmmaker Jordi Mollà (Speed Kills, Ibiza), playing a overlord that takes credit for pretty much every success in Khaled’s life.
