Straight from El Paso, TX Khalid is the newcomer causing a tidal wave. The 18-year-old released his track “Location” back in May and not even a year later, the track has over 13 million streams on Spotify. The most insane part of it all is the kid isn’t even signed to a major label…..yet.
Khalid’s latest song “Hopeless” debuted on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show. The track is a pure vouch for another’s affection. Khalid has the authenticity of Soundcloud but the work up of a radio artist. His soulful R&B vocals flatter the catchy pop beats they’re laid on. His sound is easily comparable to that of Frank Ocean.
Introduce your friends to Khalid and they’ll be thanking you. Give “Hopeless” a listen and let us know what you think.
