GRAMMY® nominated multi-platinum artist, music industry visionary, innovative influencer, mogul, and mega-producer DJ Khaled retains a perennial spot at the top of the global conversation. How many artists have sound tracked a White House Correspondents Dinner’ grand entrance by President Barack Obama and shared the screen with Academy® Award nominee Ray Liotta?  None, other than DJ Khaled…

He managed to do all of this while occupying the top of the charts. Since launching his career two decades ago, he has sold 18 million singles and 5 million albums and generated 3 billion- plus streams. His discography encompasses eight gold singles, five platinum singles, and two double-platinum singles. He landed back-to-back #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 with the gold-selling Major Key in 2016 and platinum-certified GRAMMY® Award-nominated Grateful in 2017. The latter boasted the sextuple-platinum Billboard Hot 100 #1 “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne] and quadruple-platinum “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller]. His twelfth full-length album, Father of Asahd [We The Best Music Group/Epic Records], would be the “#1 Most-Streamed Record” upon release in 2019, achieve a gold certification from the RIAA, and mark his third straight Top 2 debut on the Billboard Top 200. He also runs We The Best Music Group, stands out as a New York Times bestselling author, and served as a judge on Fox’s top-rated 2018 smash The Four. Plus, Bono welcomed him as the first social media ambassador for Project Red and Get Schooled enlisted him as its national spokesperson.
