On the heels of his album release, DJ Khaled teams up with Lil Wayne and Jeremih in his latest video for “Thankful,” the opening track off his 12th studio album Khaled Khaled.
In the uplifting clip, Khaled counts his blessings as he walks the lush grounds of his tropical paradise. He reflects on his early days hustling mixtapes and producing beats, while the newly-married Weezy recounts his humble beginnings. Jeremih, who overcame a near-death battle with COVID-19 last year, also has a lot to be grateful for.
“And I know that somebody been praying for me / Head above ground and I could’ve been six feet deep,” he sings.
Along with the video, Khaled shared an inspiring message. “This my intro of my album. This one is personal so the video needed to be personal as well,” he said. “It’s everything I represent. Believe in yourself, never give up and ALL praise to the most High.”
More visuals are on the way. Khaled recently went in front of the lens to shoot a video for his Justin Bieber and 21 Savage collaboration, “Let It Go.”
