DJ Khaled has announced the title of his forthcoming 12th studio album, the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Father Of Asahd’.
Sharing the news in a 90-second clip on Instagram, the producer took fans on a journey through his lengthy career, ending with the big reveal of the LP’s title: ‘Khaled Khaled’.
He captioned the post: “MY ALBUM TITLE: KHALED KHALED. MY 12th STUDIO ALBUM. GOD IS THE GREATEST. ALBUM MODE.”
Aside from revealing the title of his new album, Khaled also shared the titles of his first two singles, which both feature Drake and arrive at midnight tonight (July 17).
Posing with an owl on his shoulder as a nod to Drake – with two keys in its beak – Khaled announced the first track ‘Popstar’, in a clip on Instagram.
“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.
