Multi-platinum selling global superstar Khalid, who was recently named one of Time's Most Influential People of 2019, recently released his sophomore album Free Spirit which was declared a New York Times "Critic's Pick" and was called "superb" by the Associated Press. The album, which has been certified platinum by the RIAA, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and features the multi-format #1 single "Talk". Khalid catapulted into massive worldwide success when he released his first single "Location" right before his high school graduation. The song's domination (5x platinum) 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 other 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 singer-songwriter has won an American Music Award, a Billboard Music Award, a Teen Choice Award, a MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV's Woodie To Watch Award, and has been streamed over 10 billion times worldwide across all partners. Khalid has collaborated with some of music's biggest stars including his #1 singles "Love Lies" (with Normani), "Eastside" (with Halsey and Benny Blanco) as well as hits with artists such as Calvin Harris ("Rollin'"), Logic and Alessia Cara ("1-800-273-8255"), Marshmello ("Silence"), Billie Eilish ("Lovely"), Shawn Mendes ("Youth"), and more. The Mayor and Council of the City of El Paso honored him with a "Key To The City" marking September 13th, 2018 "Khalid Day."
