Epic Records

DJ Khaled returned to the top of the Billboard 200 on Sunday with the official news that his twelfth studio album, Khaled Khaled, certified itself as the newest number one album.

This marks the record executive’s third chart-topper, his previous two being 2017’s Grateful and 2016’s Major Key.

The studio effort was streamed 106.87 million since its April 30 release date and about 14,000 copies were sold in stores or online. 

Prior to being released, two singles off Khaled’s latest work appeared on the Billboard Hot 100, “Popstar” and “Greece” — both of which feature Drake.  The songs peaked at number 3 and 8, respectively.

Khaled Khaled offers a bevy of A-list collaborative talent, featuring appearances from Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, H.E.R., Justin Bieber, 21 Savage, DaBaby and more.
