In Friday's episode of We the Best Radio, Khaled revealed the release date of Major Key as well as when he'll be dropping his highly anticipated Future and Jay Z collaboration “I Got the Keys.” Khaled announced on the episode that the video will be dropping after the BET Awards on Sunday night at 11:41 p.m ET / 8:41 p.m PT.
"This video is powerful. It’s iconic. It’s amazing," Khaled said. "First of all, Jay Z don’t shoot no videos. He barely shoots his own videos. It’s very rare that you see the icon Jay Z. Very rare."
Khaled thanked Hov for shooting the video with him and Future. He continued to say the release date of Major Key and information on how to get the single "I Got the Keys" will be available after the video premieres on BET, which is likely a BET Jams exclusive.
Photos from the video shoot, which was shot earlier this month, showed off a dapper Khaled, Future, and Hov in front of a vintage car. There were also a lot of cameos including Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Swizz Beatz, Bryson Tiller, Pusha T, A$AP Ferg, T.I., Yo Gotti, Fabolous, and more. Hopefully Khaled announces the release date of the single.
Earlier this week, Khaled stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to reveal the official album artwork of Major Key. It features him sitting on a throne, surrounded by beautiful flowers, and of course a lion. "The album cover is 100 percent authentic," Khaled said on Kimmel. "What I represent from my spiritual vibes to my beliefs and not just that, but a certain energy that I keep around me. Positivity but, at the same time, as a king. A positive king."
After the episode aired, Khaled went on Instagram to reveal his album is coming out on July 29. It'll be an Apple Music exclusive. Watch a teaser below.
