The rollout for DJ Khaled’s 13th studio album has officially commenced.

On Friday, the mega-producer delivered his new track “Staying Alive” along with its official video. Featuring Drake and Lil Baby, the release serves as the lead single off Khaled’s God Did, which he announced back in July.

“I’ve been blessed to get so many great calls every day from all my peers, ‘Yo Khaled, I love your rollout,’ this and that. I told ’em, ‘Listen, I haven’t even started my rollout,’” he said Thursday in an Instagram video. “But today we start. Tonight we start. Right now we start.”

Khaled went on to hype “Staying Alive” as the “song of the year” with the “hook of the century.”

Prior to the release, the hitmaker shared a few photos from the video shoot, which took place in a fictional facility called the “Khaled Khaled Hospital.”

“We represent the future of medicine,” reads the hip-hop hospital’s “mission statement.” “Our surgical residents are at the top of their class, our highly decorated doctors are at the top of their fields, and our equipment is simply put—state of the art. We are here to ensure that you are always #StayingAlive. We’re here to do GOD’s work.”

This isn’t the first time Khaled has worked with Drizzy and Lil Baby. He connected with the former on a number of hits, including “I’m on One,” “Popstar,” “Greece,” and “No New Friends.” He and Lil Baby also joined forces on “Every Chance I Get,” “You Stay,” and more.

God Did will arrive on Aug. 26. Watch DJ Khaled, Drake, and Lil Baby’s “Staying Alive” video up top and stream the song below.
