When DJ Khaled promised his fans he was going to level-up once again on his new studio album, he wasn't playing around.

While the DJ-turned-social-media-mogul has a frequent habit of carefully teasing his new projects online, this time around, he's finally ready to confirm a couple more of the high-profile guest features he has secured for his forthcoming star-studded project, Grateful.

During a recent appearance on Los Angeles' Power 106, Khaled revealed that the follow-up to 2016's Major Key will feature none other than Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.

The powerhouse artists will join the confirmed ranks of Chance the Rapper, Lil WayneJustin Bieber, Migos' Quavo, Jay Z and Beyoncé.

As the buzz continues to swarm around DJ Khaled's highly anticipated album, rumor has it that Drake, Mariah Carey and Travis Scott will also make guest appearances. Additionally, Khaled has been seen in the studio with artists such as Alicia Keys and Big Sean, further adding to the project's allure.

While Khaled's collaboration with Drake has not yet officially been confirmed, their back-and-forth Instagram jokes make it seem like a safe bet they are cooking up something hot together for Khaled's 10th studio album.

Following the confirmation of Minaj and Rihanna, the DJ/producer took to Instagram to announce that this Friday (April 28) he will release a massive collaborative track, "I'm the One," featuring the likes of Justin Bieber, Quavo, Lil Wayne and Chance the Rapper.

Additionally, DJ Khaled is set to perform at this year's Powerhouse 2017, Power 106's annual festival taking place on May 6 in San Bernardino, Calif., alongside the likes of Big Sean and Lil Wayne.

Lest we forget, in addition to creating his latest magnum opus, the DJ is also on his way to becoming father of the year, often including his adorable son-turned-executive-producerAsahd, in his social media promotion for the album.

Needless to say, just when fans may have written off 2016 as Khaled's come-up year, he's reminding everyone that he's here to stay and is just scratching the surface of what he wants to accomplish.
