DJ Khaled is continuing to build the buzz for his next album, with Jay-Z giving his stamp of approval. Khaled posted a picture from a private listening session on Thursday, and it seems as if Hov is his biggest fan. The two rappers smoked cigars and sipped champagne, and it was clear that Jay liked what he heard.

Khaled and Hov have collaborated many times through the years, including “We Got The Keys,”, “They Don’t Love You No More” and “Sorry Not Sorry”.

DJ Khaled’s session with Jay-Z is one of many teases the mogul has given fans over the last few months. He revealed the title of the project, God Did, on July 6. Shortly after, the New Orleans native flooded social media with pictures of Drake in the studio, along with a clip of Khaled’s rise to fame. No release date for the album has been announced.

DJ Khaled markets his album

According to the release announcing the album, “God Did” has become a personal mantra for DJ Khaled. The release also featured other artists and celebrities using the phrase, including Future, Lil Baby and LeBron James.

“I made this album for all the believers and non believers. They didn’t believe in us…do you?,” the caption read. Khaled also posted a video montage of scenes from the studio while recording the album. The marketing gives the hint that the album is going for a gospel angle.

Dj Khaled’s 2021 album, KHALED KHALED, earned the rapper his third No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200. The project also managed to reach No. 1 on the Rap Albums chart, the sixth time a Khaled album has done so.

In April, the Bahamian artist celebrated getting his Hollywood Walk of Fame star. The ceremony included guests such as Jay-Z, Diddy, and Teyana Taylor.
