Rising R&B star Khalid had an exciting 2017, particularly because his debut album, American Teen, which was released on March 3, 2017, received multiple nominations last month for the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

His songs have climbed multiple charts on Billboard. The super-groovy “Location” hit No. 2 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart, while “Young Broke & Dumb” made its way to No. 1 on the same chart. And not to be held to a single music genre, Khalid lent his smooth vocal skills to EDM producer and DJ Marshmello. Khalid makes a guest appearance on Marshmello’s latest single “Silence,” which is the No. 1 song on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Streaming songs chart.
