Released on May 17, 2019, Father of Asahd is DJ Khaled’s eleventh studio album. The album was released by DJ Khaled’s own record later, We the Best Music, in conjunction with Epic Records. The album’s title was first announced in March 2018 at the same time that the first single was released from the album, “Top Off.” The release date was announced a full year later on social media, just a couple of months before the album was actually released.
Despite the fact that the album includes collaborations from some of the top names in the hip-hop industry right now, including Future, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and more, it has received mixed reviews since its release date.
The album refers to DJ Khaled’s young son, Asahd Khaled, and the album’s billings credit him as an executive producer of the album, along with DJ Khaled himself. The album was certified gold in June 2019.
