Here's What Happens When You Work for DJ Khaled and His Album Hits No. 1

Must be nice.

Published July 13, 2017

To say DJ Khaled is Grateful for his tenth studio album going No. 1 is probably an understatement. But the media mogul didn’t get to the top on his own. To show his appreciation for the team that contributed to his album’s success, DJ Khaled gifted them with brand new Rolex watches.

In a short video Khaled uploaded to Instagram on July 13, the producer was seen flaunting his full figure in the middle of the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. “We celebrating Grateful being the No. 1 album,” he exclaimed. “We also celebrating We the Best Music.” In his hand was an aquamarine box with multiple timepieces in it. “I got my team some brand new Rolexes,” he announced. One by one, he handed out multi-colored watches to three members of his team who helped make his album a reality.

He also thanked them for their hustle and, of course, offered a couple of his usual words of positivity. “We appreciate you, your dedication for being out on the road everyday, for hustling… I appreciate you for your hard work,” he said to his team. After adorning his team with the expensive wrist candy, Khaled belly-flopped from his private boat into the ocean. “You know what time it is. Every year is our year,” he said.

Grateful has been enjoying a spot at the top of the Billboard Top 200 charts for its second week in a row. The album includes summer anthems “Wild Thoughts,” featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, and “You the One” with Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne. Top recording acts like Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Nas and Drake are also featured on the record.
