DJ Khaled Chills with a Lion on New Album Cover

DJ Khaled Chills with a Lion on New Album Cover
Human catchphrase machine and cynical Snapchat marketing bot DJ Khaled continues to appeal to our basest desires for bright colours and repetitive words with his surprisingly versatile music career. Up next, he'll deliver the goods with his new album Major Key.

Further cementing the fact that he's nothing more than a play thing with which the mainstream media can toy around, Khaled revealed the album's cover on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (June 23).

The art lays on the irony thick, offering plenty of the laugh-out-loud moments that Khaled's acolytes require to get through this dark and cold world. Sitting on a throne, the self-aware Khaled makes a sincere facial expression.

He's surrounded by flowers and joined by a massive lion, and the album's title now utilizes a key emoji. It's near-perfect branding.

Check out the album art above and watch Khaled appear on Kimmel below. Major Key is coming soon via We the Best Music/Epic Records.
