Grateful which is the upcoming tenth studio album by American musician DJ Khaled is to be released by We the Best Music Group and Epic Records. The album will feature guest appearances from Beyoncé, Jay Z, Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne, Quavo, Drake, Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, Nas, Nicki Minaj, and Travis Scott, among others.
On June 5, the singer and his crew showed off the official Artwork of the album alongside the third single, and they featured Khaled’s son Asahd, who was born October 23, 2016. Asahd was also revealed to be acting as the album’s executive producer, with his father taking to talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! in March 2017 to explain the reasoning and process behind his son’s position on the album, stating:
He is credited as executive producer, and his attorney has his points and royalties, everything. Listening to the songs, going over the business part of it, [deciding] if the vocals are right, if the beats are right, if the energy’s right. When he [rocks and grins], those are smash hit records, when he [looks deep in thought], that’s the real serious records but hits with substance. It’s a vibe, you know what I mean? Believe it or not, the poops and the throw-ups are super blessings. Those are actually the real good ones. He actually threw up on me while I was mixing and working on “Shining”, and when he threw up on me, that [was] a blessing.
The album also saw production from an array of producers, including several in-house producers from Khaled’s We the Best Music Group record label. Cool & Dre and Nasty Beatmakers co-produced two of the album’s singles, which were heavily influenced by the musical styles present in Miami. The former also contributed toward three additional songs on the album, teaming up with 808-Ray for each effort. Other in-house producers Danja and Lee on the Beats additionally provided production, with Khaled enlisting the duo on several occassions prior for his previous albums. Khaled later worked with Scottish producer and disc jockey Calvin Harris, who also received a co-artist credit for “Don’t Quit“. Further production for the album was comprised by producers Nic Nac, Ben Billions, DannyBoyStyles, the Beat Bully, Schife, StreetRunner, and Azzouz.
