Ever wanted to be joined on your commute by one of the hottest names in music? He’s known for sharing his words of wisdom online and from today, DJ Khaled is bringing his life hacks direct to Waze users as its newest celebrity voice.
The everyday driving platform bringing together drivers to outsmart traffic together, and Deezer, the global music streaming service, have announced the voice will be available globally on Waze from until the end of June, to celebrate the launch of DJ Khaled’s new album ‘Father of Asahd’. To bring DJ Khaled to your Waze app, update by going to Settings > Voice Directions > DJ Khaled.
Exclusive on Waze by Deezer
The DJ Khaled voice – made exclusively available on Waze by Deezer – is running throughout all of June and will accompany users on their ‘journey for greatness’. Along the way, they’ll enjoy their rides with words of advice including ‘Stay focused’, ‘Don’t play yourself’ and ‘The top’s off the maybach!’.
“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.”
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.
