DJ Khaled’s over-the-top motivational speaker schtick is made all the more entertaining by the fact that he’s not afraid to poke fun at himself — he’s in on the joke. In the latest video for “Let It Go,” from his newly released album Khaled Khaled, he exemplifies this. Khaled shows off his sense of humor when promoting everything from his latest project to the Chime financial app and Raising Canes restaurants, enlisting 21 Savage and Justin Bieber for a tongue-in-cheek video that sees the trio battling alligators and giving a whole new definition to the word “golf club.”
The video’s plot revolves around a basic premise: Khaled and his billionaire buddies hit the links at Khaled’s own golf course for a fun round of big-money golf, with Bieber serving as Khaled’s go-to caddy. When one of Khaled’s playing partners challenges Justin to a tee shot, Bieber sinks a hole in one from what appears to be 100 yards, Khaled ends up bragging about his ability to spot and grow talent. The teenage phenom then takes on 21 Savage, displaying a series of trick shots before having to save the day by wrestling an alligator.
The trio then cruises the course in Lamborghini golf carts and has a dance party near the scoreboard. It’s all very silly and fun and exactly what you’d expect from Khaled’s latest joyful rollout, which has included dragons and pirate treasure, post-apocalyptic cityscapes, and a neon-lit casino.
