To say DJ Khaled’s recently released album “Major Key” was highly anticipated would be generic. Don’t get me wrong, we were all looking forward to what this body of work would offer, what it would contribute to the culture and the musical collaborations. But a phrase as commonly used as“Highly Anticipated” is far too indispensable to describe something that we ALL knew would SHAKE not only the Hip-hop industry but the world as a whole.
Major Key, samples well remembered and prized songs on tracks such as Do You Mind featuring Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Jeremih, and Future, For Free, featuring Drake, and Nas Album Done featuring Nas. In addition to all the “prized possessed” musical samples on the album of course it then offers traditional club anthems, and radio scores with I Got The Keys Featuring Jay-Z and Future, Holy Key featuring Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar & Betty Wright, & Don’t Ever Play Yourself featuring, Fabulous, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Fat Joe & Kent Jones to name a few.
The album Major Key is a ripple of excitement that even shines a light on current worldly events, such as race, injustice, lack of motivation and social status. Found in tracks such as Nas Album Done and Jermaine Interlude with J.Cole.
The ongoing idiom of Khaled and the term “KEYS” is a metaphor of some sort, that continuously reminds us of the “Good life” and how we can arrive there in true Khaled fashion, with confidence, allure, and most importantly his oh so “unique” way of encouraging his listeners, and music fans.
After taking a good precise listen to Khaled’sMajor Key, you will understand why I didn’t want to call it “highly anticipated” in the first place. Anything so full of substance and musical motivation is too GOOD to be “anticipated” or “expected”. It DROPS out of thin air, just like a lottery winner, a surprise blessing, a job promotion, or even a marriage proposal, you had “Hopes” but no idea how satisfying or fulfilling it would be when it actually arrived.
I can guarantee by the close of the albums final two tracks Forgive Me Father, featuring Wale, Wiz Khalifa, and Meghan Trainor, and Progress, featuring Mavado you will be fully energized, and motivated for life, business and being “Greater”. I think DJ Khaled’s sometimes overzealous messaging, has finally resonated with our souls. After experiencing the album “Major Key” I too want the keys, I mean hey they do represent “opening something unknown and new”.
