Origin: El Paso, Texas
I love coming across young talent that goes against the grain. Its easy to fall into the trap of following trends. Khalid is doing his own thing and he’s doing it well. The El Paso, Texas representative only started doing music in 2015 and has already capture the hearts of fans. I was worried about this new generation in music, but Khalid has helped restored faith. His voice is rich and soothing. He has this rasp in his voice that is entrancing and transcends the boundaries of any particular genre. Press play on his soundcloud and you hear that he can serenade over an acoustic guitar or spacey, bass-heavy production.
His standout track “Location” has surpassed 2 million plays on soundcloud and pushing towards an impressive 10 million on Spotify which comes as no surprise. The Syk Sense, Tunji Ige & Smash David produced track is pure vibes and oozes soul. Khalid’s lyrics are mature but relevant to the times. At a time when people would rather communicate via text or social media, Khalid croons ” Send me your location lets focus on communication cuz I just need the time and place to come through.” Despite the trends amongst peers, Khalid lets it be known that ” I don’t wanna fall in love off of subtweets so lets keep it personal.”
No confirmation on the release of a project, but we do know that he has been in the studio. For now, press pay below and let us know if you think he is an artist to watch.
