Combining a voice that sounds made for classic soul with cutting-edge music, Khalid is a singer/songwriter from El Paso, Texas. He was first inspired to make music by his mother, who was a singer and loved ‘90s R&B artists. Khalid eventually connected with producer SykSense, who worked on the bittersweet breakout single “Location” (released in mid-2016). In 2017, he released his debut album American Teen and later that year won a VMA from MTV for Best Artist. He collaborated with Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei and released “Love Lies,” a single that peaked at number one on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, and number 10 on the Hot 100. His sophomore album Suncity was released in October 2018 and featured the single “Better.” – Heather Phares
