I’m a part of your life, and of the everybody’s life, since I’m the guy who did ‘All I Do Is Win’, I’m the guy who did ‘I’m the One’, ‘Wild Thoughts’ and ‘Shining’ – I can go on. Usually my albums, I would have two, three big singles and one great album, this album, top to bottom, everything was a single.
“It’s not just about the numbers. It’s about the impact on culture. It’s about, every time you turn on the TV, you’re going to hear ‘All I do is win’. Every time you watch football, basketball, football, you’ll hear ‘All I do is win’. You’re watching a movie, you’re gonna hear one of my records. You turn on the radio, you’re gonna hear one of my records. DJ Khaled is the king of the anthem.”
