DJ Khaled is in album mode and has kicked off his God Did LP rollout with the release of “Staying Alive,” a new single featuring Lil Baby and Drake.
Set to arrive on Friday (August 5), the We The Best boss shared the track’s cover art on Instagram, calling the lead single of his upcoming album an “anthem.”
Within the same post, the Miami mogul also revealed that his anticipated God Did album is slated to be released on August 26. “Win with us…or watch us win,” he added at the end of his post.
DJ Khaled has an extensive history of working with both Lil Baby (“You Stay,” “Every Chance I Get,” “Weather the Storm,” “Body In Motion”) and Drake (“For Free,” “I’m On One,” “Greece,” “Popstar, “To the Max”), but this is the first time he’s got them collaborating on the same record.
