Grammy-winning producer and NY Times Bestselling Author DJ Khaled, known as the “Anthem King” and commonly referred to as the “Quincy Jones of Hip-Hop & R&B” discusses his thirteenth studio album GOD DID with ABC Network’s Nightline and reflects on his career, success, and dedication to his family in a compelling 6-minute deep dive interview.
Nightline follows Khaled arriving on the red carpet of the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards and an intimate moment with him and his family at home. Highlighting Khaled’s successful musical career, they bring light to some of his biggest anthems and classics such as “All I Do Is Win,” “I’m The One” featuring Justin Bieber, and “Wild Thoughts” featuring Rihanna. His famous phrases trending globally and his slew of endorsement deals with Apple, Weight Watchers, T-Mobile, Ciroc, and more, make him one of the most visible artists around.
When asked about his ongoing success throughout the last decade and a half, Khaled shares his blessings working with the biggest names in music and isn’t willing to stop making hit tracks — a reason why he is on his thirteenth album, GOD DID. Walking in the studio, the only goal he has is to make a timeless anthem that’s going to play forever. New Orleans-born and son of Palestinian immigrants, Khaled says he knew his success was going to happen through God and hard work.
Khaled’s latest hit single “Staying Alive” [feat. Drake & Lil Baby] paves the way for one of the biggest hip-hop releases of 2022. His thirteenth full-length studio album, GOD DID, enlists his two sons as executive producers and features many great artists such as Jay-Z, Drake, Lil Baby, Kanye West, Eminem, 21 Savage, Roddy Ricch, Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Future, SZA, Quavo and more.
