More About Khalid:

On the eve of his own graduation, Khalid created a bona fide hit in the form of “Location,” the breakout single form his debut album American Teen. It generated over 26.5 million Spotify streams and 4 million YouTube views, received acclaim from Nylon, Pigeons & Planes, Earmilk, DJ Booth, and more, and figured prominently in Snapchat stories from Kylie Jenner, P. Diddy, and Rita Ora. As “Location” became a 21st century anthem, he landed a major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records​.

“With this album, I want to show everyone it’s okay to have emotions, it’s okay to be happy, and it’s okay to be sad,” Khalid asserts. “I feel like a lot of people are afraid to open up, and the trend is to be very cold. I’m throwing everything I’ve ever been through on the table. I’m giving everyone my take on high school and life. I’m looking forward to how kick-a** 2017 is going to be. I’m very excited for the year, for music, building new experiences, making friends, and coming back to El Paso after everything happens.It’s going to be amazing.”
