The early premiere was a nice surprise for fans who’ve been waiting on the 23-track album since Khaled announced it back in February. Since then, we’ve received a handful of singles off the star-studded project, such as “Shining” with Beyoncé and Jay Z, “I'm the One” featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne, as well as “Wild Thoughts” with Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.
The rest of the album will include guest appearances by everyone from Alicia Keys and Nicki Minaj to Nas and Travis Scott to Drake and Calvin Harris. Khaled’s infant son Asahd also landed a credit as executive producer.
“He is credited as executive producer, and his attorney has his points and royalties, everything,” Khaled explained during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “Listening to the songs, going over the business part of it, [deciding] if the vocals are right, if the beats are right, if the energy’s right. When he [rocks and grins], those are smash hit records, when he [looks deep in thought], that’s the real serious records but hits with substance.”
