DJ Khaled Reveals Rihanna & Nas Will Be on 'Grateful'
Much like he did with Major Key, DJ Khaled is creating another star-studded celebration on Grateful. The social media mogul has just confirmed a slew of superstar guests ahead of the project’s release.
During an appearance on Los Angeles’ Power 106, Khaled revealed that Rihanna and Nas will both appear on his upcoming album. While this will mark his first collaboration with Rihanna, Khaled most recently worked with Nas on “Nas Album Done” off last year’s Major Key.
The two superstars join an already-impressive list of artists on the album, which includes “I’m the One” featuring Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, and Migos’ Quavo.
Fans may recall that Chano, Biebs, and Quavo teamed up for a music video earlier this year. The “top secret” shoot also included Lil Wayne, Takeoff, and Offset.
Jay Z and Beyoncé are already on Grateful, thanks to their Khaled single “Shining,” which is currently No. 59 on the Hot 100.
But another star may be joining these acts, as well. On Sunday (Apr. 23), Khaled insinuated that Nicki Minaj has submitted a verse for the album in a message to his engineer Juan. “AYO JUAN! Turn @nickiminaj vocals up,” he wrote on Instagram “#GRATEFUL THE ALBUM ITS COMING !”
Khaled is set to perform at Powerhouse 2017, Power 106’s annual festival, which will take place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, Calif. on May 6. The event will also include performances from Big Sean, Lil Wayne, and Kid Ink, among others.
