Having your song featured in Kylie Jenner’s snap is probably one of the best things that could happen to an up and coming artist. Khalid’s “Location” left an impression for its laid back sound. His previous singles “Saved” and “Coaster” is now a part of his debut album “American Teen” released March 3, 2017, and has gained somewhat of a cult following. The music video for the aforementioned song has already gained over 20 million views on YouTube. Following in the footsteps of artists like Sampha, Frank Ocean and The Weekend, Khalid is making his way.
The young 19-year-old rising artist has only just begun, but has already been featured on none other than Kendrick Lamar’s new track “The Heart Part 4”. Currently, on tour, Khalid has a voice meant for emotional expression and has a depth that can only be compared to an old soul. His lyrics are honest and the musical vibe is smooth and contagious. Khalid has made music worthy of a repeat.
Khalid on the correlation between cell phones and “Location.”
“We have certain attachments in life. Whether it’s your phone. Whether it’s your own personal music. Or whether it’s your relationship. There is a lot of attachments that we keep, and we’ll probably keep for the rest of our lives, that we can’t get over.”
