Major album alert! DJ Khaled is ready to drop his new project Major Key, which looks like it’s going to be one of the biggest albums of the summer. On Friday (July 22), the super A&R-producer unveiled the LP’s star-studded track list as well as a new single.
The album boasts an impressive list of guest features over 14 anthemic tracks. Previously released singles “I Got the Keys” (featuring Jay Z and Future) and “For Free” (featuring Drake) are on the album but there’s so much more.
Rappers Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Nas, J. Cole, YG, Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Travi$ Scott, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Kodak Black, Jeezy and French Montana all appear on the project. On the R&B side, Bryson Tiller, August Alsina and Jeremih make cameos.
Which brings us to Khaled’s new single, “Holy Key.” The head-nodding banger features Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar and the soul-stirring vocals of music legend Betty Wright. On the song, both Sean Don and K.Dot address police brutality in their verses.
“Police doing target practice with real bodies / Mamas in the street crying, standing over a still body,” raps Big Sean, while Kendrick adds, “Law enforcement their forces, tortures us with violent speed / F— your bosses employment / My joy is to see all you bleed.”
It sounds like DJ Khaled has “Another One” on his hands.

DJ Khaled’s Major Key will arrive at digital stores on Friday (July 29).
