Where people listen
After the release of his debut studio album American Teen , Khalid's sweet and wistful vocals began taking over the airwaves and streaming services. Since then, it feels as if the El Paso, TX, crooner has been catapulted into the spotlight , and he keeps delivering top-notch jams. Already this year, he received five Grammy nominations and shows no signs of slowing down as he recently released his follow-up album, Free Spirit — only five months after dropping his EP Sun City — and is set to perform at the Billboard Music Awards for the second year in a row. As a passionate music enthusiast, I'm usually able to remember when, where, and how I discover a new artist that I end up loving. Unfortunately, that's not the case with Khalid. I just remember hearing "Location" being played everywhere shortly after its release. I vibed with it, but I hadn't really listened to any of his other songs. Fast forward to about eight months after American Teen dropped, and I suddenly found myself listening to the entire thing over and over again.
