DJ Khaled to Join Jay-Z and Beyonce for On the Run II Tour
DJ Khaled is officially on the run.
The ever-exuberant music producer wrote on Twitter this afternoon (May 31) that he will be joining JAY-Z and Beyoncé on the North American leg of their highly-anticipated On the Run II Tour. The hitmaker collaborated with one of music's biggest hip-hop couples on 2017's "Shining," as well as their latest collab, "Top Off," with Future, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise.
"Hitting the road with @S_C_ and @Beyonce in North America for the
#OTR2 tour!! #BLESSUP #FANLUV," Khaled tweeted. The three of them will kick things off in Cleveland, Ohio on July 25, ending in Vancouver, B.C. on Oct. 2.
The Grateful musician has been tackling the Hollywood scene for the majority of 2018. Aside from delivering a cut for A Wrinkle in Time's soundtrack with Demi Lavato, Khaled wrapped up the first season of Fox's The Four with Diddy. The second season will air June 7. Most recently DJ Khaled linked Bronx superstars Cardi B and Jennifer Lopez for their energetic single "Dinero." Now that he has the tour lined up, expect more bangers from some of hip-hop's finest in the coming months.
When XXL spoke to Asahd's father for the Spring 2017 issue, he shared how he was inspired by Jay and Bey while on the Formation tour. "That’s Jay Z and Beyoncé, it’s the biggest artists in the game, but you actually see them be a mother and father and [give] so much love to their daughter, and nothing else matters but their family," Khaled said. "I love that and got to see that and it was inspiring. Jigga always told me, 'Wait ’til you have your kid. You think you great now, you gonna be greater.' I’m experiencing that and I just love that."
