Nas and Rihanna Features Confirmed for DJ Khaled’s New Album ‘Grateful’
DJ Khaled is building up anticipation for his new Grateful album, and fans can't wait to see what's in store for the star-studded project. While we already know Beyoncé and Jay Z are on the tracklist with their "Shining" collaboration, and Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, Quavo, and Chance the Rapper have a collab on the LP as well called "I'm The One," there are noew two more major guests we can expect—Nas and Rihanna.
The Miami DJ recently did an interview with L.A. radio station Power 106, where he spoke about all things Grateful in anticipation of his Powerhouse 2017 concert set on Saturday, May 6. Not only did he officially confirm the new LP is coming out in the near future, but he also dropped a gem, confirming Nas and RiRi as guest features on the album. J Cruz then went on to ask, "Did the Fenty vocals come in yet?" before Khaled finally answered, "Be ready." Later in the interview, Khaled also had the personality ask him, "Is Nasir Jones on your album?" to which he gave the exact same response. He didn't confirm that the Queensbridge MC's own album is finished, but Khaled did reveal, "Nas has a message for y'all on my album."
The Florida native also talks about his handsome and popular son, Asahd, who is the executive producer of Grateful, as well as their appearance together on the recent XXL cover as father and son.
If you recall, Nas was on Khaled's Major Key album last year with a track titled "Nas Album Done," which teased his fan base about the veteran rapper's next project that is currently in the works. Turns out the album isn't actually finished, but in a recent video Esco assured fans the long-awaited album would finally release this year.
