Dj Khaled is putting us through so much right now!
First, he dropped “Shinin’ ” featuring two of the biggest names in the industry, Bey and her hubby Jay Z. Next, he dropped another platinum hit, “I’m The One” which hit charts even quicker than the first release and again, featured some heavy hitters. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Lil Wayne, and Chance The Rapper had parts in the hit track which has earned over 263 MILLION views! (Check It Out Below)
Since those drops, we have felt even closer to the release of his highly anticipated 10th studio album, Grateful. Apparently, the wait will soon be over though. Yesterday, Khaled took to Instagram to release the date of his release date and now we can’t wait for June 23rd when the album drops. If you haven’t pre-ordered it yet, it’s a major key, Drake’s vocals have officially come in and it’s one of the three songs included with the pre-order!
This isn’t about Drake though, the already platinum singles, or our excitement about the release date. It’s about the fact that Rihanna AND Bryson Tiller were seen recording a new video with Khaled!
Earlier in the year, when the hype was building, Khaled revealed that Bad Gal RiRi and Nas were both to be on the sure-to-be-platinum album. Although having them on the same song would have been pretty epic, a collab with Canadian singer Tiller is even more overwhelming. It has us all guessing the vibe of the song. Is it a singing duet? Will it have us reminiscent of Kendrick’s “Loyalty?”
Rihanna was dressed like, well, Rihanna: Bright island colors, perfect for summer, and of course revealing. Tiller was captured in some pictures looking taken by Rih, but we are just screaming out “Don’t,” and of course Khaled looks like the Miami made boss that he is.
With what seems to be every hot name featured on the album right now, it leaves us wondering who else is next. So far Beyonce, Jay Z, Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, Nas, Drake, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber, Quavo, and Lil Wayne have all been confirmed editions. Nicki Minaj seems to be a good guess or even Gucci with all the fire he has under him right now. I would love to see Kendrick on the album though.
Who else do you think Khaled will feature on Grateful?
