DJ Khaled‘s 2019 album Father Of Asahd was just certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association Of America and to celebrate, Khaled teased a nugget of information about the upcoming follow-up to Father Of Asahd, revealing that the first single is already completed and features none other than his longtime hit-making accomplice, Drake.
In a triumphant post on his Instagram, Khaled boasted that the RIAA told him that he is the “only hip-hop artist to have three back-to-back platinum albums in the last 4 years.” He showed off all three plaques — one each for Major Key, Grateful, and Father Of Asahd — side-by-side, while thanking his listeners, declaring the feat was owed to “fan love — you did that.” Meanwhile, the caption of the post concludes with the tantalizing tidbit, revealing the upcoming collaboration with Drake in typical Khaled fashion. “First single BEEN done!” it proclaims. ” 🔑 x 🦉 MORE CHUNE PON THEY HEAD TOP.”
