DJ Khaled confirmed that the track list for his upcoming album that hit the internet on Tuesday â€” including collaborations like “All My Life” with Akon, Mavado and Shyne; and “Victory” with John Legend, Kanye West, Nas and Jadakiss â€” is not entirely accurate.
“Ninety percent of that track listing is so real,” Khaled said in an e-mail to MTV News. “I can tell u this, [the album] is getting even bigger. But just know the ones you read on that track listing that you hoping are on the Victory album, I can say this; God is soooo goood! VICTORY coming soon!”
Khaled revealed he has recorded new material for the album and some of the songs have changed since that track list was arranged.
“Put it this way, I took three records off because I had no choice. [The album] got bigger if you know what I mean! A classic is being made! I make hit records! Every record is a single on this album classic I do it for the people! Ha, ha, ha, we the best! Victory coming soon! Happy Holidays! And Happy New Year! We the best season has returned! 2010 let’s go!”
When asked if “All My Life” made the cut, featuring Shyne’s first raps since being released from prison a few weeks ago, Khaled didn’t clarify.
“I can tell the people this, Victory is exactly what it is, it’s victory! The [songs] I took off are getting replaced by others. Meaning more big surprises. More hits. Victory! Feb! All my people out there, I got us! We the best! I do this!”
The first single from Victory is “Fed Up,” featuring Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Usher and Drake.
