I recently came across Khalid on Spotify, and I was absolutely blown away. Think of a soulful, R&B, rapping Chet Faker, and you have Khalid. I was immediately nodding my head along with "8TEEN", and soon after I was playing his entire album on repeat.
He's only 19 and "American Teen" is his debut album. I really can't comprehend the level of talent that he possesses, and I have been sharing his music with everyone I talk to. I love the playful references to social media and how he really encapsulates what it feels like to be, well, an American Teen. Take a listen below, you will love it.
If you are in SF, he is doing an album signing at Amoeba on Tuesday, March 7. 6pm!
