DJ Khaled has spoken of his love for his son in a touching video which serves as an open letter to the tot and his fans.

In the video, which explains the meaning behind the name of his upcoming album Father of Asahd, Khaled shares home footage of Asahd, now 16 months, and reveals how much becoming a father has changed his life.

"I have an important message for you. It’s a message about the master key of master keys. I’m talking about love," he says in the voiceover. "Love can change everything. It’s changed me... My son, Asahd. He is my legacy, my love, my lion. That’s what Asahd means: Lion."

Despite being a few months short of his second birthday, Asahd has already experienced many of the finer things in life. The video shows the toddler hanging with his father everywhere from the red carpet to the back of yachts. And Khaled also shows his son his love in other ways - such as when he bought him a $100,000 (£72,000) diamond watch when he celebrated his first birthday at Miami's LIV nightclub.

"Every morning I tell Asahd, ‘I love you. I got you’," Khaled continues in the video. "But the truth is, he’s got me. He’s what gives me hope and purpose. He’s my inspiration and motivation... I got everything from my mother and father. Now I’m grateful for the one who’s coming after me."

The producer and his fiancee Nicole Tuck welcomed Asahd in October 2016.

The highly-anticipated record is expected to feature Khaled's new single Top Off, which features Beyonce, JAY-Z and Future. In the track, many people have assumed that Beyonce makes a dig at Kim Kardashian, as she raps: "I’m the only lady here, still the realest n**ga in the room. I break the internet, top two and I ain’t number two.”

Kim famously stripped off for the cover of Paper magazine's Break The Internet issue in 2014.
