UPDATE: The song and video are officially out now.
DJ Khaled is prepping the release of his upcoming album Grateful which is shaping to be another one with big A-list features, including Drake.
Back in February, Khaled teased a collaboration with Justin Bieber, Migos, Lil Wayne and Chance The Rapper by posting some photos from sets of the video shoot. None of the artists revealed the title of the song or confirmed a collaboration explicitly but it was pretty clear what to expect.
Today morning (April 24), Khaled, who will be performing at Power 106 L.A.’s upcoming Powerhouse concert, stopped by the show to make a couple of announcements. He first shared the news that his song ‘Shining‘ is now number 1 on the charts (referring to Urban radio. He’s #3 on Rhythmic radio), and then announced the title of his upcoming single ‘I’m The One‘. It will feature all the artists previously teased except that only Quavo out of the trio of Migos is featured on it. As announced earlier, Eif Rivera is directing the visual.
DJ Khaled also mentioned that he’s trying his best to get vocals from Rihanna and Nas on the album but it hasn’t happened yet.
