DJ Khaled’s ‘Grateful’ Album Goes Gold
Khaled shared the news to his fans on Twitter noting, "We did it !! FAN LUV !! #GRATEFUL #GOLD." The We The Best boss has already raked in numerous plaques for the album. Both singles, "Shining" featuring JAY-Z and Beyonce, and "Wild Thoughts" featuring Bryson Tiller and Rihanna, have also reached gold status. The single, "I'm the One" featuring Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber and Quavo has gone platinum three times over.
The Grateful album landed atop the Billboard 200 chart two weeks in a row. The first week out, the album pushed 149,000 copies, 50,000 of which were traditional album sales.
Scott Glaysher, who reviewed the album for XXL, praised the Miami-based CEO for his curating skills. "Khaled sticks to what he knows best throughout this LP and that’s creating hits with ease," he wrote "The 22 songs on Grateful aren’t anything out of the ordinary for Khaled or any of his featured guests but they remain hits nonetheless...The comforting thing about pressing play on Grateful is that you know exactly what you’re going to get: cloth talk, mogul talk, shout outs to Asahd and some good old-fashioned posse cuts."
The album features a who's who of the hottest in the industry including Future, Migos, Young Thug, Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, Jay Z, Pusha T, Jadakiss and many more.
