Drake and DJ Khaled are connecting for another one. Two, actually. πŸ¦‰

After hinting at an upcoming Drake collaboration throughout the past couple of weeks, Khaled announced on Monday that fans can expect "2 anthems" arriving this Friday.

Along with an intense hype video that finds Khaled saluting a real owl posted in a tree, the 44-year-old mogul philosophized that "each πŸ”‘ leads to the next πŸ”‘" in the caption. He added that he's in "album mode," so his 12th studio release is on the way.

He then claimed he "will bring the light" during difficult circumstances like the ones the world is facing now. "THROUGH THESE NEW TIMES DARK TIMES, and this NEW NORM WE MUST FIND THE LIGHT πŸ’‘!" he wrote. "I WILL BRING THE LIGHT πŸ’‘ THE LOVE AND MORE BLESSINGS ! FAN LUV MAY THE πŸ”‘s BE WIT U!"

Khaled will do anything to get his vibe right, even recently bringing an owl into the studio while he was supposedly putting the final touches on the tracks, making for an unusual photo op. Drake laughed.

"VOCALS BEEN IN !" he declared alongside the clip. "DEM boy ah make POP CHUNE WE ah make CHUNE ah go POP POP PON YOUR HEAD TOP."

Khaled and Drizzy have a decorated history together. They went No. 1 on the Hot 100 way back in 2011 with "I'm On One" and their 2016 collab "For Free" is certified 2x platinum. Most recently, they connected on "To the Max," which appeared on Khaled's Grateful.

But even before they were making hits together, Khaled had mad love for Drake. In a recent interview with the Drink Champs, Khaled described how "I'm On One" came together, saying that he "left the club" as soon as The Boy texted him with his vocals.

Definitely expecting more greatness on this pair of new records!
