Khalid Releases Debut Album, New Music Video On Same Day
When you think of young, R&B newcomers it's hard to not immediately think of Khalid. It's a big day for new R&B music because it's a big day for Khalid. The 19-year old singer has now released his debut American Teen and a new music video for the title track on the same day.
The album features all the hit singles from the past that you've known Khalid for and plenty of new ones. "American Teen" starts off the album on a high, positive note and then live gets real when "Young, Dumb & Broke" rolls around. The themes of the collection are clearly youth, recklessness, and trial and error with just about everything you experience throughout living life unbound. When Khalid tells the story with his angelic voice it just sounds so much better.
The "American Teen" music video continues the story from where the "Shot Down" music video ended off. Last we knew Khalid was riding on a bus with some unknown location and the beginning of this one starts with the bus doors opening to somebody the singer sees as striking. He ends up sliding over and joking around with the girl and then the rest is history. The two hang out romantically among a group of friends and life is simply perfect.
How do you like the debut and the new music video?
