"This is my most important album in my life," Khaled said in a video message posted on Instagram on Friday. "I made this album for my family, my son and my queen [wife Nicole Tuck], I love you so much. I made this album for my fans and I made this album for all my people that believed in me. Thank you so much, I'm very grateful."

In March, Khaled also talked to E! News' Justin Sylvester about his Father of Asahd album.

"I'm gonna set the bar so high," he said. "Meaning as in, it's time to get back to hit records, it's time to get back to records that make you get bone chills and goosebumps and in the party and the anthems and the records that make you put your hands up it's time to get back, 'cause there's a big difference between good and great. So when this album comes out, that's gonna be the new bar."

"Not only is it personal, it's for all my fans worldwide," he continued. "And I want people to know the title is not only the father, the son and the family love relationship. It's about the journey to become the man who I am, father of Asahd. So, when the young world hear the album and understand the roll-out and understand what the name means, it means basically, me climbing that mountaintop and never stopping, and while I'm climbing, I became me and the father of my biggest blessing, my son Asahd. So it's like, I want people to know, this is inspirational, motivational, anything's possible. Don't think it's impossible. Make it possible."
