Everyone needs a little motivation, and DJ Khaled provides plenty of it. Whether he’s in a Jacuzzi, walking around his beautiful mansion, or riding up to Diddy’s house via a Jet Ski, there is no shortage of major key’s and gem’s that the record producer bestows upon his fans.
The Miami native has been on a tangent for the past few months, thanks to his usage of the popular social media platform, Snapchat. Known for his self-inflicted ad-libs, Midas and ability to place a solid “Who’s Who” list of artists on hit records, Khaled has taken his talents to the social media app, and he now has everyone following him down the path towards more success.
At the end of April, the radio personality revealed that he would be the opening act for Beyonce’s Formation tour. Since the first stop of the multi-city line-up, Khaled has partnered up with the online retailer Zappos.com to hand-deliver orders with two (2) free tickets to the highly anticipated show.
Although the last stop of the tour was in Detroit, MI on Tuesday (June 14), five lucky fans received the special, same-day delivery from Khaled himself. VIBE had a chance to chat with Khaled about his partnership with the online shoe and clothing shop, Snapchat and more.
DJ Khaled: Zappos loves their customers and I love my fans. It’s all about that fan love. Meeting fans at their crib or backstage and giving them their Zappos order has been priceless.
Which city have you enjoyed performing for during the Formation Tour?
Kicking off the tour in my hometown of Miami was really something special, but from stop-to-stop, it’s been non-stop and I give each city everything I’ve got.
What has been the most memorable moment in regard to being the opening act on the Formation Tour? It’s not just one moment, you know. I have 30 minutes, and I tear it down legendary. The minute I come on stage, I give you a DJ Khaled performance as well as a DJ Khaled DJ set.
With Snapchat being a platform where you can quickly share pieces of your day, what do you like most about the user-friendly interface?
For me, it’s all about the fans and fan love. Snapchat gives me the opportunity to connect with my all my fans all across the country, every day.
