    “Khaled Khaled” may be the name-above-the-title DJ’s best and most holistic record. All you need do is ignore your host, and enjoy.

    Never subtle but always entertaining, ‘KHALED KHALED’ is a wild ride, a rollercoaster that clicks into gear just as the world begins to re-open.

    Ultimately the album gets away with overly familiar breaks thanks to the superb level of stars. ... It’s not his best compilation, it’s not his worst, but it’s another one.
  4. When Khaled does make magic happen, it’s plain to see his brilliance – as when he pairs H.E.R. with a dancehall-infused backdrop on ‘We Going Crazy’, utilising the singer’s silken vocals in a way we’ve not really heard before. But, as with all Khaled albums, there are plenty of misses too. The low points here come when you can’t really hear Khaled’s imprint at all.

    Commerce is pulling more gears than art here. Simply skip the lows and ride the highs. Because when Khaled does hit, it can still be fun as hell, like gorging on popcorn and 'splosions.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. DJ Khaled continues to make his mark as a mogul and curator who brings artists together to make collaborations. His level of involvement in the writing and production of the songs is disputable, his most consistent involvement continues to be the adlibs that are made on all the songs where he shouts his name or something else. This collection of songs is certainly imperfect but its not all bad as many are saying. Some of the songs are really good and others needed more work, as far as production and mixing goes. I thought collaborations like WE GOING CRAZY, I DID IT, LET IT GO, THIS IS MY YEAR, BODY IN MOTION & SORRY NOT SORRY were real bops. The Cardi song 'BIG PAPER' has a very simple beat but her bars and delivery are really good. Then there are other songs that i honestly don't even remember. All in all, there are some songs which are real bops and others which are just there not doing much. But people just seem to be exaggerating how bad the album is and thats my opinion.I like what KHALED does, the idea of having various stars come together is brilliant, but he should put more emphasis on consistency. Hopefully DJ KHALED prioritizes quality over star power on his future efforts. Expand

    é incrível como alguém consegue reunir tantos nomes fortes da música e ainda sim fazer um projeto ruim, nem tem muito o que explicar, éé incrível como alguém consegue reunir tantos nomes fortes da música e ainda sim fazer um projeto ruim, nem tem muito o que explicar, é simplesmente desagradável Expand

    ANOTHER ONE! Please DJ Khaled, I'm begging you don't. The recurring introduction to each song hurts, my mind, body & soul.

    Nothing new here, just trash as usual. This dude really thinks he is making something, 1037294728 collabs ≠ success and much less quality

    DJ Khaled hits a new low. Please delete. Nobody wants to hear this anymore at this point.
