DJ Khaled shared the first single from his upcoming album Major Key last week, with the bouncy Drake-featuring “For Free.” Sitting down with Zane Lowe for an interview, in which Khaled said Major Key is going to be “so iconic,” Khaled talked extensively about his his latest record. “This is my ten year anniversary,” he explained. “‘Listen’ was my first album. Ten years of We the Best music. Twenty-five years of blood, sweat and tears and passion, pain and success and of coarse blessings. And this is a special time.”
DJ Khaled also lent himself to the latest commercial for Apple Music, bringing Naomi Campbell along. Featuring his newest single “For Free” and R. Kelly’s “Bump N’ Grind,” Khaled’s commercial is just as ridiculous and entertaining as we’ve come to expect from Khaled. “They don’t want me to drop top Phantom, driving up PCH with the beautiful icon Naomi Campbell,” he announced at the start of the commercial. He also shared yet another commercial, in which he hits up a nail salon with Ray Liotta.
During his interview with Zane, he also took a moment to address his infamous jet ski Snapchat story, saying, “That’s not a key don’t drive your jet ski at night. Give thanks that the Snapchat flash on the Apple iPhone guided me home.” Speaking about Major Key, he talked about possible collaborations on the album, saying, “Big Sean is confirmed. [Lil Wayne] confirmed. Lil Wayne me and him collaborate all the time. I won’t make an album without him. It’s like Rick Ross. About to go in the studio with him. I try and get as many verses from him as possible.”
Talking about Drake, he said, “You know Drake is my brother, we made great records like ‘I’m On One’ and ‘No New Friends’ that have been so huge in my career and I’m so grateful to work with him. I know he doesn’t do too many features so to work with Drake is always a special moment for me and I’m very grateful for it.”
