With the announcement of the acts performing at Wireless 2018 concert being released, the big question on everyone’s lips is “Who are DJ Khaled’s friends?”
— Wireless Festival (@WirelessFest) January 22, 2018
With hits like “All I do is win“, “Wild thoughts” and “Shining“, Khaled is known for being a true hit-maker. So who could his friends be?
Featuring both Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, Wild Thoughts was a summer smash with it’s catchy lyrics and an instrumental sampled from Carlos Santana’s Maria Maria. Managing to reach the number one spot in the UK charts, Wild Thoughts could be the life of the Wireless festival.
By bringing together Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil’ Wayne, Khaled was able to create a fun summer sound which was only enhanced by the video itself which featured all 3 of the Migos and not just Quavo. Could this be a hint that all 3 of the Migos could be part of the travelling entourage ?
Calling on the iconic husband and wife duo that is Jay Z and Beyoncé, ‘Shining‘ proved itself to be the kind of song that you drive around listening to, singing along at the top of your lungs. Neither of the two have made much of a public appearance since the birth of their twins but this comeback would be fitting of the couple who are known for doing the unexpected.
3 years ago Khaled gave us Hold you down which featured Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future and Jeremih all four of whom are wildly popular, not just based on this song but also based on their standalone music which could also be at play during wireless.
Even before that, 6 years ago we had the DJ Khaled x YMCMB collaboration “I’m On One” which some could say solidified Khaled’s status as a group hit-maker. It certainly wasn’t his first song featuring other artists but due to the popularity of the Young Money label at the time, this song instantly became a popular hit.
DJ Khaled is currently part of the TV show “The Four: Battle For Stardom” alongside Diddy, Meghan Trainor and Charlie Walk. He also has songs with Alicia Keys, Nicki Minaj, Nas, John Legend and so many more!
For a man who doesn’t actually have many lines in songs, DJ Khaled sure does have a lot of friends.
