DJ Khaled lands two GRAMMY® nominations, one in the Best Rap/Sung Performance Category with his song “Higher” featuring the late Nipsey Hussle and John Legend, as well as Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media with “The Lion King: The Songs” by (Various Artists), where his produced track “Mood Forever” was featured. This makes DJ Khaled a four time GRAMMY® nominated artist, with “Higher” coming from his highly successful 12th studio album, Father of Asahd.
“This is an incredible honor that Nipsey Hussle, John Legend and I professed when we were all creating the “Higher” anthem. Long Live Nip! The Marathon continues!” DJ Khaled states on his nomination for Best Rap/Sung performance.
On his second nomination where Khaled produced “Mood Forever” which was featured in the “The Lion King: The Songs by (Various Artists)”, Khaled joyously proclaims “I also had the honor and privilege of working with the Queen, Beyoncé on her masterpiece, “The Lion King: The Songs” with “Mood Forever”. God is the greatest! Very Grateful! Asahd my son has his first Grammy Nomination! Asahd we did it! Tears of Joy! We the Best!”
A musical visionary, DJ Khaled has been at the forefront of the hip-hop industry for over a decade. To date, he has sold over 18 million singles. His last three albums—the Gold Certified Father of Asahd , Gold Certified, Major Key  and platinum-certified GRAMMY® Award-nominated Grateful —each bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and yielded an unmatched string of number one hits, including the quintuple-platinum “I’m The One” [feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, & Lil Wayne], triple-platinum “Wild Thoughts” [feat. Rihanna & Bryson Tiller], double platinum “For Free” [feat. Drake], and more.
