EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s one thing to attract as many top-tier guests to an album as DJ Khaled does. It’s another to create winning chemistry between them. Here, the producer/talent wrangler achieves that by seeking out intriguing contrasts as well as complementary voices for his string of radio-ready anthems. Travis Scott’s layered, shape-shifting vocal springs off Nas’ old-school gravitas (“It’s Secured”), Alicia Keys provides a regal counterpoint to Nicki Minaj’s bullish energy (“Nobody”), and JAY Z’s playful triumphalism bounces around Beyoncé’s steady cool (“Shining”).
