DJ Khaled – I Got The Keys (ft. JAY Z & Future) [Single Premiere]
DJ Khaled drops the second single off his upcoming ninth studio album ‘Major Key’, this time the hip-hop mogul teams up with JAY Z and American rapper Future on ‘I Got the Keys’.
‘I Got the Keys’ trades the island-flavoured catchy hooks of the Drake-assisted ‘For Free’ for a more hard-edged, hip-hop anthem. The inclusion of Future on a record can either hit or miss the mark and unfortunately his presence falls under the latter this time round with his jarring vocals on the hook not meshing with the oscillating, repetitive nature of the beat helmed by Southside with additional production from Jake One and G-Koop.
On the flip side, JAY Z knocks the ball out the park with his verses and raises a toast to his successes referencing owning his recording masters, winning the ‘Big Pimpin’ lawsuit and implying that other artists can’t get on his level of success until they’re free of a record label deal. Listen to ‘I Got the Keys’ below:
