2018’s most surprising partnership has been announced.

Although it kind of makes sense when you think about it.

Weight Watchers broke the news on New Year’s Day via their Twitter account:

‘MAJOR ALERT! Today we’re welcoming a new member to the #WWFamily, @DJKhaled! We’re excited to share in his journey and be his partner as he Freestyles his way to his goals. Join him on his journey’

The star also shared the news to almost four million followers of his own.

And other celebs were eager to welcome him to the WW club, such as Oprah.

The collaboration, as Perez Hilton puts it, really makes sense.

As has been noted, DJ Khaled has already spoken about his weight loss – having shed an impressive 20 pounds – which arguably makes him the ideal face for the slimming brand.

Fans had some fun with the news, too, seeing as the Wild Thoughts artist is so used to being at the top of his game as a winner.

The recording artist experienced huge success with his tenth studio album, Grateful, when it was released in the summer of 2017.

The album shot to the number 1 spot in the US, and featured artists like Rihanna, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Justin Bieber, and Nicki Minaj.
