Khaled will guide drivers with a more natural phrases using words from from his new music album “Father of Asahd,” such as “Stay focused”, “Don’t play yourself,” and ‘The top’s off the Maybach!”

Khaled is not alone when it comes to celebrity navigation voices in the app. The popular DJ joins Morgan Freeman, C-3PO and Kevin Hart as GPS voices.
