Attention, BeyHive! Another big announcement about Beyonce’s “Formation” tour is up us.
Back in February of this year, famed DJ and producer DJ Khaled surprised fans with the news that he’d recently signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label and now it looks like he’s keeping things in the family with his latest major career move. Fresh off of a star-studded visit to the White House to meet with President Obama, everybody’s favorite Snapchat superstar has landed the gig of a lifetime.
As if the announcement of her Formation World Tour, the launch of her Ivy Park Clothing line, rampant rumors of a looming new album and two cryptic trailers for her HBO premiere of “Lemonade” aren’t enough to keep Beyonce fans on edge with anticipation, Khaled has now confirmed that he’ll be joining Mrs. Carter on tour.
He officially shared the news in an Instagram post earlier today, where he referred to Beyonce as an “icon” and described her music as “the soundtrack to so many people’s lives across the globe.”
