When talking about production in the United States, many music lovers will tell you that in the last few years no one beats New Orleans-born singer and producer, DJ Khaled.

He stands virtually peerless as a music producer who releases entire albums which are hits – and they feature mostly top range artists. 

If you thought his most loved album, the 2017 project Grateful, was lit with number one charting anthems like “Wild Thoughts” and “I’m the One,” then the upcoming record sounds worth the wait. 

It’s DJ Khaled squared: Khaled Khaled is the name of the much anticipated upcoming album from the 45 year old.

DJ Khaled himself took his excitement to Instagram on Friday, posting a video which shows the unmistakable frame of the DJ running with his phone held to his head, before jumping into a swimming pool with it, then shouting with excitement: “THE VOCALS ARE IN!”

He then dives under water while still shouting – before resurfacing and finishing the sentence “The Justin Timberlake vocals are in!”

This means that the Khaled Khaled album not only has his name spelled out twice, but it will also feature the two best singing Justins in the US: Justin Timberlake and Bieber.

Timberlake, after hearing the unfinished song, said it can be compared to Jay-Z’s hit songs “Song Cry” and “Holy Grail.”

Bieber also featured on his previous albums Grateful and the Father of Asahd, which was released in 2019.

The album, which is “100% done and it’s amazing” according to DJ Khaled, Mohamed Khaled, it’s expected to be released this coming Friday, on 30 April 2021 and will be his 12th studio album since 2006.
