DJ Khaled hosted a special We the Best Radio episode Thursday night to debut his ninth studio album Major Key.
During the two-hour show, Khaled played Major Key in full. The album has been supported by singles such as Jay Z and Future’s “I Got the Keys,” Drake’s “For Free,” and Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean’s “Holy Key.” Earlier today, Khaled shared one more teaser called “Do You Mind,” which features an all-star lineup: Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, Future, and Rick Ross.
Khaled is known for constructing some of the biggest anthems in the game on his albums, but Major Key has one song by Nas titled "Nas Album Done" that doubles as a confirmation that his twelfth studio album is finished. While Nas hasn’t announced anything about it yet, at least it's a surefire sign that fans will be getting new music from him soon.
Major Key will be successful due in part to the motivational anthems he has placed on the album. Songs like “I Got the Keys,” “Work for It,” and “Don’t Ever Play Yourself” follow the same mantras Khaled and our other August/September cover star Tony Robbins have laid out in “Hunters of Human Excellence.” If you need a spurt of inspiration, read their advice on how to never play yourself and why having a lot of pillows is a key to success.
