DJ Khaled and Drake have another one on the way.
The Grammy-winning producer is teasing a new collaboration with October’s Very Own. Over the last 24 hours, Khaled has been posting images of owls on his Instagram feed and Stories. He captioned the posts with emojis of a key and owl, the mascot for Drake’s OVO label.
After seeing his comments flooded with Drake references, Khaled addressed the speculation. He didn’t confirm whether Drake was featured on his new single, but said that fans will have to wait a little longer for the song.
“Bless up all fan luv new single not coming now but soon come soon reach,” said Khaled, who is spending his time in quarantine with his sons and wife.
The song is done, but he told them to be patient. “Luv to all my fans. Of course the first single been ready,” he added. “Trust me I’ll let you know when it’s time I PROMISE! New album in works and yes first single been done.”
However, fans can 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 in an earlier post, while revealing that he has a “big shoot coming up.”
He also shared a screenshot of a FaceTime call between him and Director X, who has directed Drake’s videos including “Hotline Bling,” “Life Is Good,” and “Work.”
Back in January, Khaled teased the Drake collaboration when he flew to Toronto to link up with the 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 is readying his new album, the follow-up to last year’s Father of Asahd. He and Drake have collaborated several time in the past on songs including “I’m On One,” “No New Friends,” “For Free,” and “To the Max.”
