Khalid, who just won the American Music Award for Favorite Male Artist – Soul/R&B, is currently in the studio working on his highly anticipated sophomore album (due out early 2019). Inspired by a recent trip to his home of El Paso, TX, (AKA the “Sun City”) where he received the Key to the City, had a day named in his honor, performed two sold out hometown shows, “Suncity” marks the beginning of a new era.
Says Khalid, “More than anything in life right now I want growth. I want my music to grow and represent how I am growing up. “Suncity” is the start of a new era for me, this music poured out of me and I didn’t want to wait to share it. I wanted to be able to live in this moment with my fans and my friends and speak from the heart.”
Suncity includes Khalid’s recently released single “Better” which Billboard called a “sensual single” and PAPER Magazine praised, “Few things sound better than Khalid’s silken vocals over an easy throwback track that sounds just as at home in the ’90s and it does today.”

The singer-songwriter has won a Billboard Music Award, a Teen Choice Award, a MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award, most recently an American Music Award, and has over one billion streams worldwide across all partners.
