Major Stadium alert! DJ Khaled is making big moves in the music industry and the Miami producer is ready to go.
The We the Best CEO was in shocked when he got the call to join one of the biggest tours on earth. However, he didn’t speak to Queen Bey just yet about their journey. Nevertheless, Khaled is ready to bring his brand of excitement to the tour.
“I haven’t talked to her since they gave me the news…but I’ve been blessed to be around Jay Z and Lenny [Santiago] and see her presence,” he told Angie. “When I see her, I praise her and I just run. I’m focused. I don’t plan on saying nothing wrong, but the key is to focus on not do too much. It’s just focus.”
Beyonce wasn’t the only major name that gave him the call. President Barack Obama called the rap mogul for a special conference for his Brother’s Keepers initiative. In essence, it was a major key alert.
“When I got the call, I was like, ‘They gonna let me in?’ I don’t know how this works,” said Khaled. “So, I got the call and we canceled whatever was on the schedule that day. It had to go. That’s President Obama and not just that, that’s somebody I really like and look up to and I voted for. And that’s the Prez.”
Khaled is also working on his next project, Major Key. If you are familiar with any of Khaled’s previous albums, then you know he can amazingly corralled some of the biggest hip-hoppers together for one song.
“I drive to be great every single time, but I want y’all to imagine all this energy that’s going on that’s special, the good vibes,” he says about the album. “This energy is coming in the music too. I got everybody on it but I can tell you this: I got the ones they can’t get, too. I got the verses that they can’t get and they barely do it for themselves.”
Look for DJ Khaled on Beyonce’s “Formation” World Tour when it kicks off on April 27 in Miami.
