Khalid burst onto the music scene with his first single “Location”, which received great critical acclaim.  Complex said, “A soul record that fools you into thinking it’s a hip-hop record until you think about it, ‘Location’ has a great concept and is well-executed.”  NYLON stated,One would expect that a mature, soulful sound would have few fans among millennials, but Khalid is here to shatter expectations.” Teen Vogue also noted, “Boasting soulful vocals that stand out against a dazed, minimalistic soundscape, the track is about the eagerness that comes with talking to a new romantic interest.” “Location” is currently #9 at Urban Radio and #25 at Rhythm, #64 on the Hot 100, and has 33.8 million plays on Spotify.

 

Currently, Khalid is on his first-ever North American tour entitled “The Location Tour”, in which he sold out all twenty-one shows. The singer/songwriter also recently added shows in select European cities as well. Tickets are on sale now.  See full list of tour dates below.
