American DJ and music mogul DJ Khaled recently shared his newfound inspiration from Afrobeats. He expressed that he’s experienced a similar “spiritual connection” as he does with dancehall. DJ Khaled made these revelations during a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
In the same interview, he announced that Afrobeats sensation Burna Boy will feature on his upcoming 14th studio album, ‘Til Next Time,’ scheduled for release in 2024. Furthermore, he expressed his desire to collaborate with the Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi, widely known as Tems.
In a lighthearted moment, DJ Khaled also mentioned that his parents playfully suggest he should run for president, although he has never shown any interest in politics. He stated, “As far as politics, I never got into it. It’s a never-ending conversation of back and forth. There’s never an answer. I’d rather be the person that focuses on the solution of being good at all times, working hard, and spreading that love because you can do that.”
