He’s one of the hottest names in music and known for sharing his words of wisdom online, but from today DJ Khaled is bringing his life hacks direct to Waze users: as its newest celebrity voice.

Available only for a limited run from May 23 till the end of June globally, each ride will be a “journey to greatness”—in celebration of DJ Kaheled’s new album Father of Asahd, which Waze has partnered with Deezer to bring DJ Khaled to your daily commute.

“We are beyond excited to launch the DJ Khaled voice in partnership with our friends at Deezer,” said Adam Fried, head of global partnerships at Waze.  “DJ Khaled has one of the most recognizable voices in the industry and is beloved by many of our 115+ million users around the world, so we can’t think of anyone better to safely and entertainingly guide Waze drivers on their journeys.”

“It’s the best combination to make any car journey a win, and we love the opportunity to bring one of the world’s largest artists even closer to his fans through our partnership,” added Laurence Miall-d’Aout, Deezer’s Chief Commercial Officer.

Waze and Deezer began working together in late 2018, when the popular music streaming app became a Waze Audio Player partner: an embedded audio player giving drivers an easy way to listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, news and more – all while safely navigating.  In addition to DJ Khaled navigating your drive, he can also soundtrack your ride when you listen to his 100% playlist on Deezer.
