DJ Khaled has been flaunting his upcoming I Change A Lot album for some time now. The album, which will be Khaled’s 8th studio album, was led by it’s first single, “They Don’t Love You No More,” featuring French Montana, Rick Ross, Meek Mill and Jay Z, in the summer of 2014. Since then, Khaled has followed that single up with “Hold You Down” featuring Chris Brown, Jeremih, August Alsina, and Future; and “How Many Times,” which featured Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and Big Sean.
This morning the Miami rep officially announced the release date for I Changed A Lot and released two brand new singles and music videos, along with the official cover art for the album, pictured above. The new album drops October 23rd and the two new visuals are for his singles “Gold Slugs” featuring Chris Brown, August Alsina and Fetty Wap and the Future, Trey Songz and Jeremih-featured “You Mine”.

Detroit native DeJ Loaf gained mass appeal last year with her smash hit “Try Me”. Since then she has been proving that she is much more than a “one-hit wonder”. DeJ’s EP #AndSeeThatsTheThing, which was released in July of this year, gave listeners a chance to get better acquainted with the double-threat emcee as she showcased her own R&B skills behind that soft voice. As fans await for a debut album by DeJ Loaf, she revisits #AndSeeThatsTheThing and delivers a brand new visual to “Back Up” featuring fellow Detroit native Big Sean.
