DJ Khaled Announces Partnership With Def Jam Recordings
DJ Khaled announced last week that he has signed an exclusive partnership deal with Def Jam Recordings for his We The Best label venture as well as his future releases.
Khaled, who has logged global sales of over 20 million singles and six million albums in addition to garnering more than four billion streams, is also set to join Universal Music Group in an executive role and serve as Global Creative Consultant to Def Jam and UMG’s family of artists across the world.
“This new chapter marks a special time for me. The energy at this point in my career is at an all-time high and I’m grateful to Sir Lucian Grainge for allowing me to join his empire at this stage in my journey,” said Khaled. “Together, we will achieve even greater heights and take it to the next level. I feel blessed and so inspired with renewed energy. I’m excited to not only partner, but to come back home to Def Jam.”
“I’m excited to join my sister and visionary executive LaTrice Burnette once again, as we have had tremendous success on every single project we have collaborated on in the past. Def Jam is the culture and together we will make history yet once again,” he added.
