The video for “Where You Come From” marks the latest release from the Palestinian-born American artist, a tribute to Rastafarianism alongside great Jamaican artists.
The New Orleans-native unveils his twelfth album, “Khaled Khaled,” which he released last Friday. He defines this new project as a “gift for the world,” and is pictured on an Islamic prayer mat next to his children on the album cover proud of his “name” as well as his “heritage.” As usual, DJ Khaled surrounds himself with many artists, including Cardi B, Drake, H.E.R., Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Lil Wayne and Nas.
He also dedicates the entire video to Jamaica, which he says he has a deep love for. Bringing together three great monuments of Jamaican music on the same record for the first time, DJ Khaled finally follows one of Capleton’s commandments that “music is a mission, not a competition,” They instantly plunge us into the green universe of Kingston – green being one of the colors of the Jamaican flag and of Islam.
The song is deeply spiritual, with Bounty Killer, Buju Banton and Capleton chanting, “Rastafari, ever safe and secure.” Capleton sees his mission as “spreading the word of Rastafari around the world and taking reggae to another level,” leading to his image as a true spiritual guide for young Rastas.
