DJ Khaled has seen a new level of success in the last 6 months than he has in his entire career, all thanks to Snapchat. With a Beats1 radio show under his belt now and boasting over 6 million followers on the social network, Khaled has even more big things in the works.
Khaled has announced that his We The Best label has inked a deal under L.A. Reid at Epic Records, and his ninth album, Major Key, will be arriving soon. And on that album, there will be a track featuring none other than Jay Z and Future.
Producer Southside is behind the boards on that one, and revealed the news during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid recently. He says the song is untitled as of yet, and is co-produced by Jake One and G-Coup. Khaled confirmed the news to Miss Info.
Congrats on all of the major moves! Check out what Khaled had to say about the Epic partnership below.
“After weeks of consideration I have made a decision on where to land the biggest brand in the game. A brand that has been built from the ground up. A brand that I spent my entire life building even before I gave it a name. Today I proudly announce my new partnership with LA Reid and Epic Records,” said DJ Khaled. “We The Best Music/Epic. Those two brands are synonymous with quality music. Iconic music. LA Reid was the first executive to give We The Best Music an opportunity to distribute my music on a grand scale. It is a very satisfying feeling to realign myself with someone who shares my vision of bringing fans the best music possible. When I think about Epic Records the first thing that comes to mind is Michael Jackson Thriller. An iconic artist with an iconic album and iconic logo. In short I’d like to thank all the people behind the scenes that helped make this partnership a reality. And to all aspiring superstars across the globe I say this I AM SEARCHING FOR NEW TALENT TO PRESENT TO THE WORLD! When it comes to breaking new artists, no one does it better than WE THE BEST MUSIC!!
