Multi-platinum selling global superstar Khalid has catapulted into massive worldwide success since he released his first single “Location” right before his high school graduation. The song’s domination (5x platinum in Canada) led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records followed by the release of his debut album, the double platinum certified, American Teen. The album, which garnered Khalid 5 Grammy nominations (along with numerous American Music Award, Billboard Music Award, BET Award, VMA Award, Teen Choice Award, Billboard nominations) received mass critical acclaim with Rolling Stone calling Khalid a “pop prodigy” and TIME Magazine stating, “His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery.” American Teen shattered expectations, as it stayed in the Top 200 for 51 weeks, peaked at #4, and stayed in the Top 20 for 48 out of the 51 weeks it was in the Top 200. The album peaked at #7 on the Billboard Canadian Albums chart. 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. In addition to American Teen, Khalid has collaborated with some of music’s biggest stars. He has been featured on a number of songs including mega hits like Calvin Harris’s “Rollin” with Future, “1-800-273-8255” with Logic and Alessia Cara, “Silence” with Marshmello, “Lovely” with Billie Eilish, “Youth” with Shawn Mendes, and many more. Khalid’s single the multi-platinum, “Love Lies”, a duet with Normani hit #1 at Top 40 radio and his track “OTW” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 6lack burned up the airwaves. Khalid wrapped up his third sold-out North American headlining tour and recently, the Mayor and Council of the city of El Paso honored him with a “Key To The City” marking September 13th, 2018 “Khalid Day.” While in his hometown, Khalid performed two sold-out arena shows and dropped his track “Better” dedicated to his fans and the city of El Paso along with the “Suncity” EP. The lead single off the EP, “Better” hit #1 at U.S. Rhythm radio and is currently Top 10 at US CHR and the recently released remix of “Saturday Nights” featuring Kane Brown is off to an explosive start.
