Artist of the Week: DJ Khaled
We almost never have to guess what our Artist of the Week is doing — DJ Khaled shares every waking moment of his life on Snapchat. From brushing his teeth in the morning, to luxurious boat rides and even the birth of his child, this guy documents it all.
Recent snapchat stardom has propelled DJ Khaled into further mainstream success, but he has been producing top hits for a while. His 2007 single “We Takin’ Over” earned RIAA Gold status and featured Akon, T.I. and Lil Wayne, among others. In 2008, he won BET’s Hip Hop DJ of the Year Award for the song “All I Do is Win.”
DJ Khaled ’s most recent albums, Major Key released on July 2016, and Grateful, released just under a year later in June, both debuted at No. 1 on Billboard. Popular hit, “I’m the One”, featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, earned DJ Khaled his first No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Star studded album Grateful also boasts guests such as Beyonce, JAY-Z, Drake, Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj and Calvin Harris.To round out a successful summer, DJ Khaled will perform at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival, which takes place on September 22-23.
