Following the monumental success of his 5x Grammy-nominated, double Platinum debut album American Teen, Khalid is gearing up to break new records with his highly anticipated sophomore effort, Free Spirit. First taste single, "Talk," co-written with Disclosure, adds to a stable of hits that's truly staggering for an artist so young. Free Spirit also includes new tracks "Self" and "My Bad" and special guest John Mayer on the song "Outta My Head."
From 7x Platinum "Young Dumb & Broke" and 3x Platinum "Better," to the stack of collabs with some of the world's biggest artists, such as Normani on "Love Lies" (5x Platinum), 6LACK and Ty Dolla $ign on "OTW" (2x Platinum), Martin Garrix on "Ocean" (2x Platinum), Benny Blanco and Halsey on "Eastside," Shawn Mendes on "Youth," Calvin Harris and Future on "Rollin," Logic and Alessia Cara on "1-800-273-8255," and close friend Billie Eilish on "Lovely," Khalid has truly become one of the most notable names in pop today.
Rolling Stone has called Khalid a "pop prodigy" while TIME Magazine stated that, "His thoughtful, relatable reflections on modern youth culture and the limitations of love are just as pitch-perfect as his soulful, measured delivery."
