About Khalid:

Khalid has been surrounded by music his entire life. He grew up in a military family, his mother is a singer with the Army and he was introduced to music at an early age. Khalid spent most of his childhood in Germany before moving to Watertown, NY for High School. The summer going into his senior year of High School, Khalid’s family was ordered to relocate to El Paso, TX. By 18-years-old, Khalid, who is classically vocal trained, had drawn on his experiences with moving often and the unique experience of growing up having lived in two continents and parlayed them into the creation of his viral smash, “Location” which helped him to land a major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.  Khalid released “Location” before his high school graduation and it garnered over 1.52 million plays in less than two months.  Khalid’s debut album, American Teen, has received mass critical acclaim with The New York Times calling it “a promising amalgam of bedroom art-soul and 1980s new-wave pop maximalism, and a union of lonely-boy mirror gazing with a sense of larger cultural purpose”. TIME noted, “Preternaturally soulful 19-year-old Texan singer-songwriter Khalid has a way with beats—and words—that speaks to the modern American experience of youth in a natural, resonant way.” Billboard also praised, “…glorious assortment of relatable themes… it’s clear that, much like his bright-eyed lyricism suggests, the best is yet to come”.  Khalid has also performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America, and at this year’s SXSW where he won MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award. Additionally, Khalid embarked on his first-ever headlining tour in both the U.S. and select European cities where he sold-out every single date before the album was even released. Khalid has nearly half a billion streams worldwide across all partners, and “Location” peaked at #1 at Urban Radio, hit the top 3 at Rhythmic Radio, and in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.  Khalid is currently on tour with Travis Scott.
