DJ Khaled Announces New Label Deal & Album, ‘Major Key’

Can the Snapchat success translate into sales numbers?

DJ Khaled is going to attempt to parlay social media/Snapchat success into some real achievements as an artist. For his first full-length studio album since dominating the social media conversation late last year, DJ Khaled is linking up with Epic Records to drop the fittingly-titled Major Key. The project will serve as the first release of his new partnership and deal with Epic Records, which he just revealed early this morning. Approriately, Khaled broke the news via in the most Khaled way possible: a very animated, boisterous Instagram post. No word yet regarding the specifics of Major Key, but it's safe to say we're going to receive many new collaborations and "anthems."
