Just like Father of Asahd, Khaled Khaled is expected to be an album with many guest stars. Khaled teased some of the A-list artists, including H.E.R., Migos, Meek Mill, Nas, Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch, and Timbaland. Khaled also shared a teaser for a song called “Thankful” featuring Lil Wayne and Jeremih.
Last week, Khaled professed his excitement by jumping into his swimming pool when two famous Justins - Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber - tried FaceTiming him. They had just submitted their vocals for the album. Khaled was so busy mixing it, he missed the call. In the post, he noted, "ALBUM 99% DONE!!!!!!!"
