American Teen employs progressive pop and R&B to create love songs of a specific moment
that still feel timeless, which means hits like “Young, Dumb & Broke” will be the anthem at every prom. The
only word in that title that still applies to Khalid is “young” as he continues to pop up everywhere, stacking
up Grammy nominations, collaborating with Kendrick Lamar and performing at Coachella with SZA.
Generation Z may live through its handheld devices, but Khalid proves great art can be made of intimacy in
the digital age. Khalid Robinson turned twenty in February, but the singer-songwriter’s star has been
shooting skyward since the 2016 single “Location,” which reflects the yearning for your crush to drop a pin.
