DJ Khaled and Drake have new music on the way. The “We the Best” mogul has announced that he and Toronto MC Drake have collaborated on a “pop chune,” which serves as the first single off his upcoming album. Khaled took to Instagram on Saturday and shared a video of himself sitting in the studio alongside a real-life owl, Drake’s OVO mascot.
“VOCALS BEEN IN !” he captioned the clip. “DEM boy ah make POP CHUNE. WE ah make CHUNE ah go POP POP PON YOUR HEAD TOP.”
For weeks now, Khaled has been teasing the track, sharing images of owls across his social media feed. At the moment, it’s still unclear when the song will drop, but Khaled previously told fans to expect new music sometime this summer, with an album to follow. “I AM SUMMER ! There no summer wit out a KHALED ANTHEM! I AM SUMMER ! New album in the works and FIRST SINGLE BEEN DONE !” he said.
DJ Khaled had also teased the track during a recent appearance on N.O.R.E’s “Drink Champs” podcast. “Drake is definitely on DJ Khaled’s single, and the vocals sound so incredible,” he said. “The frequency of that motherfu**er, the sonics, the way that shit sound, it’s incredible.”
Recent activities equally showed that a video may also be in the works. Last month, Khaled shared a screenshot of a FaceTime call between him and Director X, who has directed Drake’s video, including “Hotline Bling,” “Life Is Good,” and “Work.”
Also, in January, Khaled flew to Toronto to link up with 6 God at his new mansion. During his visit, they also hit the studio. “It’s amazing what you can get done in 24 hours. I can’t wait to share these moments and real life Story wit you,” he said at the time.
Khaled, who is readying his new album, the follow-up to last year’s Father of Asahd has collaborated with Drake in the past on songs including “I’m On One,” “No New Friends,” “For Free,” and “To the Max.”
