The Snapchat superstar took to social media to make the big announcement. “Today’s announcement is a major accomplishment in my life,” he wrote on Instagram. “In other words it’s a major achievement alert!!!! I am proud to announce that I, DJ Khaled will be on tour with the icon, Beyoncé!!!!! Fan luv, when I tell you that prayer is the so powerful, please believe me.”
He also showered Beyoncé with praise, calling her an “incomparable icon” and calling this tour a “tremendous opportunity of a lifetime.” He then went on to say that “They” inspired this major achievement.
“When I was a kid THEY told me no when I wanted to DJ and perform in the club,” he wrote. “So guess what, I did!!! OPEN FOR BEYONCÉ!!!!!! Fan luv we did it! We made on the stage with the Queen. Get ready to feel passion pain success and tears of joy in a STADIUM NEAR YOU!!!!!”
Bey’s “Formation World Tour” is her first solo run since 2013’s “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.” In 2014, however, she did a joint tour with her husband Jay Z, who coincidentally, is DJ Khaled’s new manager at Roc Nation.
As Khaled preps his run with Queen Bey, which starts April 27 in his hometown of Miami, the producer is also working on a new album called Major Key, which he says is coming soon.
