After building hype for his Major Key album with “For Free,” featuring Drake; “I Got the Keys,” featuring Jay Z and Future; and “Holy Ghost,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, and Betty Wright, he delivered one final warm-up for the album, which hits stores on Friday: “Do You Mind,” featuring Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, Jeremih, Rick Ross, and August Alsina.
If the track sounds familiar, that’s because it flips the beat from Usher, Ludacris, and Lil Jon’s chart-topping 2004 single “Lovers and Friends” (which itself sampled Michael Sterling’s 1990 track “Lovers and Friends”). August Alsina even borrows a bit from Usher’s verse on the original for his part here.
Although it might look like Khaled’s packed every major name onto the album’s first four releases, there’s actually more to come: He’s also got songs with Nas, J. Cole, Bryson Tiller, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, French Montana, and a ton more.
Do you mind?
