Ahead of the SNL season finale, Khaled teased the star-studded performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, promising fans a show like no other.
"I'm just going to let you know... I've been trying to get on Saturday Night Live for a long time, and I'm so grateful that it came around this time," he told Fallon while holding the cover art for his new album.
"This is my most important album, but what I tell you what's going to happen on the Saturday Night Live finale is, it's going to be more history. The bar is going to be set real high, it's going to be star-studded, it's going to be incredible, it's going to be phenomenal, it's going to be historic and it's going to be legendary."
Khaled also took time to explain the significance of his 11th studio album, with the artwork featuring himself and his son, Asahd, in the Holy Mountain.
"What I'm saying is.. I started my album with a record called 'Holy Mountain' that's my intro, and the last song is called 'Holy Ground...' this album is very spiritual for me... it's the next chapter of more blessings, more love more gratitude, more success," he said.
After Fallon complimented the music producer's attitude, Khaled said he aways believed in speaking his dreams into existence.0comments
"I always knew I'd be a hitmaker, I looked up to the greats and got inspired by the greats, I always felt like I've been great but as soon as my son came into my life I became greater. I breathe different, I move different, I feel different, I think different. I'm a father, I'm the father of Asahd," Khaled said.
Saturday Night Live will return for its 45th season in fall 2019.
