DJ Khaled has had a hell of a year following the release of his twelfth studio album Khaled Khaled in April. As with any DJ Khaled project, the 14-track project featured huge guest appearances from Drake, 21 Savage, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Nas, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, Cardi B, and several other high-profile artists. The company that he kept on Khaled Khaled was enough to propel DJ Khaled’s latest project to the top of the Billboard 200, but upon the album’s release, many fans yearned for a DJ Khaled of the past.
Those fans can get excited because today marks the five-year anniversary of one of DJ Khaled’s classic albums: Major Key. Released during the height of Khaled’s “Key Alert” era on social media, DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album was bolstered by hit tracks like “For Free” with Drake and “I Got The Keys” with Jay-Z and Future, and it boasted guest features from J. Cole, Bryson Tiller, Nas, Kodak Black, Jeezy, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, and much more.
