By now we should expect nothing but “success” from DJ Khaled and the cover to his new Major Key album exudes it.

The charismatic DJ/producer/”rapper”/financial expert/motivational speaker/Rocawear brand ambassador enlisted the services of iconic photographer Jonathan Mannion to capture a moment that only his life would produce. Khaled can be seen basking in the sunlight in a garden of flowers with a lion taking in the scenery right next to him.

The caption that followed matched the subtle intensity of the photo:

Khaled, who has mastered the art of showing everything but revealing nothing, all but told fans when Major Key is actually dropping. The album’s release date is still unknown. In another post on his instagram page, Khaled says to tune into his Beats 1 Radio show for more information on this Jay Z and Future song that he’s been teasing us with for weeks.
