DJ Khaled has confirmed that his new album will feature “Higher,” a collaboration with the late Nipsey Hussle. Khaled announced the news about Father Of Asahd, which is out on Friday, May 17, on Instagram and added that all of the proceeds from the song will go to Nipsey’s children.
“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” Khaled wrote on Instagram. “It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission, that I, my co-writers, producers, and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.”
John Legend tweeted about his involvement in the song, too. “Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with djkhaled and @nipseyhussle,” Legend wrote. “We lost him too soon.”
Father of Asahd is the follow-up to 2017’s Grateful arrives Friday via We The Best Music/Epic. The album’s first single “No Brainer” featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, and Chance The Rapper, was released last summer.
