About Khalid:
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 (4x platinum in the US and Gold in the UK) led to Khalid’s major label deal with Right Hand Music Group / Columbia Records followed by the release of his debut album, American Teen, which has since gone double platinum in the US and Gold in the UK. The album, which garnered Khalid 5 Grammy 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.” He has since earned an incredible 9.1 plus billion streams globally, which resulted in Khalid being the second most streamed artist on Spotify in 2018. The singer-songwriter has won a Billboard Music Award, a Teen Choice Award, a MTV Video Music Awards, a MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award and most recently a American Music Award. 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 hit single Love Lies, a duet with Normani, is now certified Platinum in the UK and his track OTW featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 6lack burned up the airwaves. Khalid has performed on Later with Jools Holland, The Ellen Show, The Tonight show starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, the Billboard Music Awards and the Teen Choice Awards.
