The 14-track LP also features guest appearances from Mavado, Kendrick Lamar, Big Sean, Betty Wright, Nas, J.Cole, Bryson Tiller, Jeremih, Nicki Minaj, August Alsina, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Kodak Black, French Montana, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Fabolous, Jadakiss, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, YG, Yo Gotti, Kent Jones, and surprisingly, Meghan Trainor.

Major Key is currently available on iTunes. Congrats, Khaled!
