DJ Khaled’s “Major Key” Hits No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Chart

Multi-platinum artist, music industry visionary, innovative influencer, mogul, mega-producer, and Anthem King DJ KHALED officially kicks off the #EpicSummer campaign and celebrates his first-ever #1 album debut on the Billboard 200 Chart with MAJOR KEY (We The Best Music Group/Epic Records).  The news was announced today by LA Reid, Chairman and CEO, Epic Records.

 

MAJOR KEY was exclusively available as a premium-only release on one service, Apple Music and the iTunes Music Store. MAJOR KEY is now available to all digital retailers and streaming services and the physical CD release is August 12th.

“I am extremely proud to be able to share this much-deserved, career-defining #1 album with my longtime friend, DJ Khaled,” said LA Reid. “Khaled‘s pure musical talent, hit-making ears, and social media savvy, combined with the fiercely loyal bond with his devoted fan base, is clearly reflected in his first week debut.  No one works harder nor deserves it more.  I am blessed to be associated with Khaled and look forward to many more years of hits together.”

Added DJ Khaled, “This album would not have been possible without the love and support of the Queen Ms. Lauryn Hill, and I would like to share the letter she wrote in support of “Nas Album Done” feat. Nas : “DJ Khaled, thank you for that acknowledgement, and thank you and Nas for blessing up the chune lol. Fugee-La was a special song for us.  I have fond memories of us and Salaam recording that song. My son, Zion, ironically laid his own thoughts down in verse on this same song recently. There must be something in the air.  May God bless your family and the arrival of your new child. I also remember that Humble Lion show!  Grace and peace to both of you.” xo, MLH.
