Who Is DJ Khaled?
Khaled was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on November 26, 1975. His parents were Palestinians who had moved to the United States. Alec Ledd, whose stage name is Alaa Khaled, is his brother.

Release Date Of DJ Khaled’s New Album
DJ Khaled has announced the release date for his upcoming album, which goes by the title GOD DID, and has also shared the first single off the album.
The album GOD DID is scheduled to be released on August 26 via We The Best Music Group/Epic Records. The album’s debut track, “Staying Alive,” will be released on August 5 and will feature contributions from Drake and Lil Baby. The new track will continue Khaled and Drizzy’s collaboration, which has already resulted in the release of the multi-platinum singles “POPSTAR” and “For Free,” the platinum single “GREECE,” and the gold-certified singles “To The Max,” “I’m On One,” and “No New Friends,” both of which feature Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, respectively. At the same time, Khaled and Lil Baby are extending their creative work together after the success of “Every Chance I Get” with Lil Durk and the platinum cut “You Stay” with Meek Mill and J Balvin. Both of these songs have been certified multiple times platinum.
On Instagram one week before the official announcement, Khaled posted a teaser for the upcoming duet. “Are you a believer? Or do you need me to keep demonstrating it to you? I can demonstrate to you more clearly than I can explain it to you,” he stated. “Succeed with us. Or you can watch us prevail. That #GODDID!”
GOD DID by DJ Khaled will be available on August 26, while “Staying Alive” will be available on August 5.
