“Do You Mind” is a single by American musician DJ Khaled. It was released on July 28, 2016 by We the Best Music Group and Epic Records as the fourth single of DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album, Major Key. The song features guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Jeremih, Future, August Alsina and Rick Ross.
The song samples “Lovers and Friends” performed by Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz, featuring Usher and Ludacris, which also samples “Lovers and Friends” performed by Michael Sterling from his 1990 album Trouble and also samples “Money Ain’t a Thang” performed by Jermaine Dupri, featuring Jay Z in Future’s verse. The song was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
On this balladic anthem — “one for the ladies” — DJ Khaled recruits an impressive line-up of R&B crooners and rappers for a sexy, sweet, piano-driven tune that samples Lil Jon’s crunk slow jam “Lovers and Friends.”
“Do You Mind” is the fourth single and one of the most star-studded cuts off DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album, Major Key. The song features all of the same artists who contributed to Khaled’s 2014 single “Hold You Down”, which is also his seventh top 40 hit. The song premiered on July 28, 2016 on iHeart Radio, and was later released on iTunes and Apple Music.
Nicki Minaj has appeared on three of the last four Khaled albums — she missed 2015’s I Changed A Lot and now’s back on Major Key. Rick Ross is the only rapper that’s been featured on every single DJ Khaled album since the first one in 2006, even multiple times on each record. In fact, his verse on “Do You Mind” is his twenty–ninth feature for a Khaled studio project, and definitely not the last one.
