During their conversation, Khaled explained that Chicago’s Lil Bibby, who signed Juice WRLD to his label Grade A Production, sent him an MP3 file that included a track that the late rapper had created specifically for Khaled.
“I get a text from Bibby [that] said, ‘I heard you’re working on your album, GOD DID.’ I said, ‘Yeah.’ And he sent an MP3 immediately,” Khaled said. “I ain’t get a chance to reply yet. So I listen to it on my phone and I start looking around like, ‘Am I bugging? Am I tripping right now?’”
“I immediately ran to my laptop, had a little set up outside ’cause I was in my last-minute magic mode for the album … And Juice WRLD made a song talking about DJ Khaled, ‘another one’ and We The Best. Not a verse — a whole song,” he added. “I’m looking around like, ‘What the f*** is going on?’ I felt like Juice WRLD was in my studio and recorded that.”
“Juice WRLD DID” arrived as part of Khaled’s 13th studio album, GOD DID, which features a total of 18 songs, with a slew of impressive features from artists including JAY-Z, Quavo, Takeoff, Nardo Wick, Kodak Black,Drake, Lil Baby, Eminem, Future, Travis Scott, Rick Ross, City Girls, Don Toliver, Kanye West, SZA, Gunna, Latto and John Legend, among others.
The latest full-length effort from Khaled is expected to open at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, moving approximately 105,000 to 115,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.
Juice WRLD’s legendary legacy continues to live on through music — earlier this year, the late star’s estate released a series of music videos for tracks including “Cigarettes” and “Go Hard 2.0,” as well as a new vinyl edition of his highly revered Fighting Demons record.
