After a lot of teasers and cryptic messages on the singer's social media accounts, DJ Khaled has finally dropped his newest album entitled The Father of Asahd.

"Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years", Khaled wrote. Among the 15 tracks on the album (read Variety's review) is the song "No Brainer", featuring Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Quavo, which was a Top 10 hit following its release in summer 2018.

The two artists, besides DJ Khaled himself, will also appear in the track's music video which was filmed and completed earlier this year before Hussle passed away. "They'd rather see me down, put my soul in the fire / But we keep goin' higher, higher", he sings.

Khaled said all proceeds from the gospel-tinged song would go to Hussle's children, Emani and Kross.
