The We The Best mogul announced the heavyweight collaboration on Instagram on Tuesday (July 26), sharing behind-the-scenes footage from the song’s accompanying video shoot.
“They want to finish me, so I went and got Drake and Lil Baby,” Khaled said in one clip as the trio posed in front of an ambulance. “They never believed in me. Why do you think I win so much? Because of you.”
DJ Khaled had especially high praise for Drake, who he thanked for “being a true friend and always believing in me” while sharing a video of them hugging on the set of the video shoot.
The pair have enjoyed a prolific partnership over the last 12 years, teaming up on hits including “I’m On One,” “No New Friends,” “For Free,” “Greece” and the triple platinum-certified “Popstar.”
Khaled’s upcoming single will also mark the latest entry in Drake and Lil Baby’s growing catalog following “Yes Indeed,” “Never Recover,” “Wants and Needs” and “Girls Want Girls,” all of which cracked the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Yes Indeed” soared to 7x platinum status last October.
The OVO and 4PF rappers’ winning formula even extends beyond the studio; earlier this year, Drake credited Lil Baby as his good luck charm when he won $17 million on a single roulette bet. “You know why that happened?” he said while celebrating his massive win. “Because Baby walked in! That’s why.”
It was during that May gambling session that Drizzy revealed he and Baby were cooking up at his home studio in Toronto.
DJ Khaled announced God Did as the title of his 13th studio album earlier this month, although he has yet to share a release date, tracklist or cover art. In addition to Drake and Lil Baby, the veteran DJ/producer has teased appearances from other big names including Kanye West, Future and 21 Savage.
